As the Worm Turns

The As the Worm Turns Book Group will discuss Stir: My Broken Brain and the Meals That Brought Me Home by Jessica Fechtor (Plume, $16.00). At 28, Jessica Fechtor was happily immersed in graduate school and her marriage, and thinking about starting a family. Then one day, she went for a run and an aneurysm burst in her brain. She nearly died. She lost her sense of smell, the sight in her left eye, and was forced to the sidelines of the life she loved. Jessica's journey to recovery began in the kitchen as soon as she was able to stand at the stovetop and stir. There, she drew strength from the restorative power of cooking and baking. Written with intelligence, humor, and warmth, Stir is a heartfelt examination of what it means to nourish and be nourished. Woven throughout the narrative are 27 recipes for dishes that comfort and delight. Betsy Von Kerens will facilitate the discussion.
