Discuss "Baking Cakes in Kigali" by Gaile Parkin

  • October 26, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • Deborah's House

Deborah will have some refreshments provided, if you'd like anything special feel free to bring it!

This meet up is on Saturday in case someone would like to make it to the event "An Evening with Wally Lamb" on friday.

This soaring novel introduces us to Angel Tungaraza: mother, cake baker, pillar of her community, keeper of secrets big and small. Angel’s kitchen is an oasis in the heart of Rwanda, where visitors stop to order cakes but end up sharing their stories, transforming their lives, leaving with new hope. In this vibrant, powerful setting, unexpected things are beginning to happen: A most unusual wedding is planned, a heartbreaking mystery involving Angel’s own family unravels, and extraordinary connections are made—as a chain of events unfolds that will change Angel’s life and the lives of those around her in the most astonishing ways.
