A must-have for reading groups whose members love Jacqueline Susann as much as John Steinbeck and Cosmopolitans as much as chamomile tea.

Read It and Eat is a hip, witty, and occasionally irreverent guide to creating book club get-togethers with flair, sparkle, and delicious food and drink based on Gardner's popular newsletter, The Literary Gathering. Appealing to the nearly 10 million book club members nationwide, Read It and Eat features fiction and nonfiction reading selections ranging from timeless classics to irresistible beach reads, and recipes for easy-to-prepare (and easy-to-transport!) cocktails, finger foods, sit-down dinners, and satisfying snacks, from Confessions of a Shopaholic's Cut-Back Shrimp Curry and The Tortilla Curtain's Mint-Garnished Mojitos, to Gone With the Wind's Georgia Peach Bread and Horse Heaven's Champagne Juleps.

Organized by month, each chapter highlights a different theme (i.e., January: Change Your World; February: Be My Valentine) and contains an introduction to the theme and reading selections; engaging, thought-provoking discussion points; and recipes inspired by the readings. As fun to read as it is to use, Read It and Eat promises to be the strappy high-heeled sandal in the book club world of loafers and Birkenstocks.
