Nov 1, 2017 Library Newspaper Article for Eclipse

Coming Soon:  Guest Author, Darcy Maulsby, will be at the library on Wed. Nov. 8 for a book talk/signing event.  “From Iowa originals like Maid-Rites to kolaches to homemade cinnamon rolls—served with chili, of course—there are many remarkable stories behind Iowa’s tastiest traditions,” said Maulsby, a Lake City native and lifelong Iowan who has been featured in the Iowa History Journal, Our Iowa magazine, Iowa Public Radio and more. “Pull up a chair, and relish what you missed in history class.” During her fun, interactive program, Maulsby serves up fascinating tidbits and cooking tips related to more than 150 years of Iowa cuisine and ethnic food traditions, from all corners of the state, with stories that include Pella’s famous Dutch letters, Iowa’s classic breaded pork tenderloins, church dinners, the historic Younkers Tea Room, Laura Ingalls Wilder and more. Discover how Iowa’s delectable cuisine is quintessentially Midwestern, grounded in its rich farming heritage and spiced with diverse ethnic influences. (This program has been made possible through the Butler Co. Community Foundation Grant.)
