Saturday, Aug. 21 at 11 a.m. Kathy Gehrt will share ideas from her book, “Discover Cooking with Lavender: Fresh and Flavorful Recipes.” Did you know that by toasting lavender briefly you can transform it from a very floral flavor to a very pleasant herbaceous flavor often used in the cooking of Provence? Sample some treats on your way to the Saturday market.
Monday, Aug. 23, at 11 p.m. The bookshop will celebrate the release of “Mockingjay” by Suzanne Collins, the final volume in the “Hunger Games” trilogy.
