Globetrotters Book Group: Mistress of Spices Tuesday, June 30th @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm at Hayward Library-Weekes Branch, 27300 Patrick Avenue, near E. Tennyson Road/Highway 880 Interchange), Hayward. This month we will discuss Mistress of Spices by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni. On a mythic island of women powerful spices like cinnamon, turmeric, and fenugreek whisper their secrets to young acolytes. Ordained after trial by fire, each new spice mistress is sent to a far-off land to cure the life pains of all Indian seekers, while keeping a cool distance from the mortals. Only stubborn, passionate Tilo, disguised as an old woman merchant in present-day Oakland, California, fails to heed the vengeful spices' warnings. Fragrant with spice and sensuality, this winning tale rolls off the tongue. No registration is required. All are welcome to attend. Contact 510-293-5366 for information.
