A Literary Feast, Vol. III
What’s better than spending a cool fall evening curled up with a good book? How about spending it with some fun book people and fabulous food, all while supporting your library? KFL’s popular A Literary Feast fundraiser is back for its third "volume” this year, with new book-themed dinners and a new addition for morning people – a Literary Brunch at the library.
On Sat., Nov. 8, volunteer hosts from around Kennebunk will host ticketed dinner parties in their homes. Each host has selected a favorite book and built a menu around the theme. For example, the Animal Farm dinner will feature a pork entrée and local vegetables; the Mission to Paris dinner will be French cuisine. We promise you won’t have to do any homework to attend a dinner – the book simply provides inspiration for the dinner. Stop into the library or give us a call to find out about the variety of other creative menus available.
This year, in addition to the dinners, a Sunday brunch will be held at the Library on Sun. Nov. 9 at 11 AM. The elaborate menu - inspired by the novel The School of Essential ingredients - will include a variety of meats, salmon, quiche, pastries, and fruits as well as a Mimosa or Bloody Mary.
Whichever dinner you choose, the ticket price includes a delicious gourmet multi-course meal, and wine or a signature cocktail. And, of course, it gives you the opportunity to see your neighbors’ beautiful décor, dine with friends, and meet some new people. Hosts decide when to begin the dinner, but all will start between 5:30 and 7 PM.
Tickets go on sale at the library on October 6th. Stop in to review the menu selections available and choose the one that you prefer. Dinner tickets are $75 each; brunch tickets are $50. Because dinners are served in private homes, spaces are limited. Buy your tickets early to ensure that you get a place at your preferred event. After November 1, ticket prices go up to $85 for dinner; $60 for brunch .For more information about A Literary Feast, or if you would like to host a dinner (don't delay!) call the library at (207)985-2173 or email us.
