THE RECIPE CLUB Meets the Woman’s Club

When we were invited to do a reading and signing at the Woman’s Club of Minneapolis, we had no idea we’d be stepping back in time into a gracious, spacious, rather bodacious Roaring Twenties landmark building!

We were informed that by entering this building, we were following in the footsteps of Thomas Friedman and Garrison Keillor, both of whom had presented lectures at The Woman's Club of Minneapolis.

But obviously it’s not all that hard to get used to palatial, 16th-century fireplace mantels and burnished mahogany bookcases.

Not a bad club house for The Recipe Club.

So after pumping each other up with assurances that we probably wouldn’t spill our drinks on the priceless rugs, we took our place at the podium, and let it rip.

The AuthorsGiven that the mean age of our audience was probably 75 or so, you can’t blame the ladies for being a little sleepy after their big lunch. Which is why that one lady snoozing in the third row didn’t hurt our feelings at all. If anything, we envied and admired her.

As for the others in the audience—those kind women who valiantly fought off the post-prandial Sandman—they provided an eager ear and a warm reception. We were truly happy to spend the afternoon with them.
