The Ice Cream Makers book cover

The Ice-Cream Makers by Ernest van der Kwast

Wednesday, November 17, 7:30 PM

In the far north of Italy lies the valley of the ice cream makers: about a dozen villages where, for generations, people have specialized in making ice cream. Giuseppe Talamini claims it was actually invented here. Every spring his family sets off for the ice cream parlor in Rotterdam, returning to the mountains only in winter. Eldest son Giovanni Talamini decides to break with this tradition by pursuing a literary career. But then one day his younger brother Luca approaches him with a highly unusual request. Now Giovanni faces a dilemma: serve the family’s interests one last time or choose his own path in life, once and for all. Led by Professor Michael Boecherer.

An Elderly Lady is Up to No Good book coverAn Elderly Lady Is Up to No Good by Helene Tursten

Wednesday, December 15, 7:30 PM

Enjoy these five connected stories about a murderous old Swedish lady. Maud has a good thing going. At age 88, she’s lived in a large apartment rent-free for 70 years because of a clause in an old contract. Never married, she loves to travel alone and to be alone. The book is pure fun, although slender. Another volume of Maud’s misdeeds would be most welcome.
