Join the Reading Under the Roof Cloud book club for a mouthwatering read—legendary food writer Ruth Reichl’s first foray into fiction, Delicious! The former Gourmet magazine editor’s book takes readers into the world of character Billie Breslin, who abandons college to work as assistant to the editor of Delicious! Magazine. When Delicious! is unceremoniously folded by its parent publisher, Billie is the sole employee kept on to honor the magazine’s guarantee: “Your money back if the recipe doesn’t work.” Between phone calls from wacky subscribers, alone in the yawning old mansion headquarters, Billie discovers a hidden room and a cache of quirkily cataloged letters from a young girl to Delicious! writer James Beard during WWII. The discussion will conclude with a tour of the exhibition Snack.

Delicious! is available for purchase in the Museum Shop ($16).
