Then, take a walk around Hyde Park Village where the Lanpher Library will have set up a Storywalk. Pages of the book "How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World", by Marjorie Priceman will be posted up and down Main St. Begin at HPES, and follow the story up to the Second Congregational Church, where you can pause (put a bookmark in the story!) to take a break at the Church, enter in free drawings to win copies of books for all ages, including a Pie Cookbook and a copy of the Storywalk book. There, you can also get a warm up of Hot Chocolate, Coffee, Water, and sample some fruit from around the world.
Don't forget to finish the Storywalk by picking up the story at the Hyde Park Opera House and continuing back down Main St. toward the school. The Storywalk will be set up from 9:00-1:00.
We hope all ages of friends from all over will join us!

We invite you to join the Lanpher Memorial Library and the Copley Health Science Library as we present a book discussion as part of the Spring 2015 Lamoille County Community Health Talk Series!
On Wednesday, March 11th from 6:00-7:30 p.m. at the Lanpher Library, we will discuss the book: Know Your Chances: Understanding Health Statistics, How to See Through the Hype in Medical, News Ads, and Public Service Announcements, by Steven Woloshin, Lisa Schwartz and H. Gilbert Welch.
Copies of the book are available at the Lanpher Memorial Library. This book discussion is FREE and open to the general public.
Health messages can be confusing and misleading. The goal of this book discussion is to provide some background information and tools on how to better understand just what those numbers in health messages mean and what questions to ask to see behind the hype to discover what the message is actually saying.
"The authors....are general internists at the Department of Veteran Affairs, White River Junction, VT and professors at Dartmouth Medical School. Woloshin and Welch are co-directors of the Center for Medicine and the Media at the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice."

We have a great collection of cook books at the Lanpher Memorial Library. Healthy eating, gluten free, organic, slow cooker, vegetables, greens, desserts, international, for kids, for heart health, for your gut, for salty snacks, ice cream, Weight Watchers, zucchini, chocolate....
In the age of the internet, (where, I admit, I love to "google" a few ingredients that are in my pantry and see what recipes come up), why do we need so many cookbooks?
This is a question I ask myself when I review new books to add to the Lanpher Library's collection each month. In the case of cook books, it pays to be selective.
However, when I read the review for In Her Kitchen: Stories and Recipies From Grandmas Around the World, by Gabriele Galimberti, I was intrigued. My Grandmothers are/were excellent cooks and bakers. What, I wondered, wisdom and delights would this book hold?
I ordered it and this morning I opened the box with this treasure inside.
Author, Gabriele Galimberti, a photographer from Italy, was about to embark on a photography trip around the world. He sat down to enjoy dinner with his grandmother on the eve before he left, to eat his favorite meal that she had so lovingly made for him: ravioli. She was not worried about the dangers he might face on a two year assignment, her concern was that he would not be well fed on his journey. He recognized the concern as a gesture of love, pride and joy in cooking for her loved ones.
As he assured his Nonna that there were Grandmothers all over the world who feed their families with love, he decided he would find them as he traveled and send the pictures to his Nonna to prove it. And so this book came to being....
Almost 60 Grandmothers from almost as many countries are photographed standing in their kitchen, or cooking area, with the ingredients for their dish lined out in front of them. The other side of the double page spread is a photo of the completed dish. Turn the page and you will read a short bio. of each woman with information about their recipe, and then, of course, the recipe.
The simplicity of this book, the beauty and diversity of the photos and the incredible variety of food, makes this one to read, explore, and sample the dishes that are important to families around the world. Shared with love, joy and pride.
And, it is dedicated to the author's Nonna, who is the very first Grandmother featured, with her recipe for Swiss Chard and Ricotta Ravioli with Meat Sauce, of course!
