Be My Guest

Be My Guest
by Priya Basil

Update:  The book giveaway "Be My Guest" is over, the book is being shipped.
Please stay tuned for future giveaways. Thank you:)

I miss the library!  One of the last times I visited the library before COVID shut them down, was with Scott. We attended a local writers' event. The speaker was Greg Sarris, an author I had read before and the Chairman of the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria. The talk was so interesting covering Environmentalism, local Native American Culture, Casinos, and our Community.  I remember Greg Sarris and the library gave away hundreds of his books for "free" until they ran out. Scott and I picked out a couple of books each to add to our reading stack. I remember good feelings that day,  how wonderful it was to experience such generosity.

This afternoon, I finished Priya Basil's book "Be My Guest": Reflections on Food, Community, and the Meaning of Generosity. I like books that celebrate and describe cultures, food, and experiences I am not familiar with. This book kept me interested through-out.  

"Be My Guest" is my next book giveaway. 

The first blog reader who emails me gets it:) Please place title of the book in your email so I know which giveaway it is.  

Be My Guest
"A brave and beautiful exploration into food, race, memory, and the very meaning of life. I read it greedily-and so will you."

-Meera Sodha, food writer and columnist
