Avid Bookshop presents Celeste Fletcher McHale in celebration of her first book The Secret to Hummingbird Cake on Tuesday, February 23, 2016, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. There is no admission charge.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
When all else fails, turn to the divine taste of hummingbird cake.
In the south you always say “yes, ma’am” and “no, ma’am.” You know everybody’s business. Football is a lifestyle not a pastime. Food—especially dessert—is almost a religious experience. And you protect your friends as fiercely as you protect your family—even if the threat is something you cannot see.
In this spot-on southern novel brimming with wit and authenticity, you’ll laugh alongside lifelong friends, navigate the sometimes rocky path of marriage, and roll through the outrageous curveballs that life sometimes throws . . . from devastating pain to absolute joy. And if you’re lucky, you just may discover the secret to hummingbird cake along the way.
