    Presented by Amy Panetta, MA, NC, Nutrition and Weight Loss Consultant

    School is out and the summer is in full swing! Through the long winter, have you felt restless, as well as overwhelmed with stress? And even though you would love to roll into the “lazy days of summer,” are you finding the calendar full of activities?

    With Amy Panetta, MA, NC, Nutrition and Weight Loss Consultant, you will take a much-needed time-out and get inspired to take up some new self-care activities that will help you detox from stress, rebalance ourselves, and even help you shed excess weight! You will learn the biochemistry of stress on the body, how it can impact weight gain, and you will leave with a number of strategies you can use right away in your daily life! Through using these techniques consistently, you can feel well rested and begin autumn activities with a better sense of inner calm!

    With Robert Barossi of Hunger Mountain Co-op

    “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” – Virginia Woolf

    Dining on exceptional food and reading an extraordinary book are two great pleasures, and we hope you’ll join us for a book club, co-presented by Kellogg-Hubbard Library, designed to bring those two joys together. Each month, we’ll read a work that is about or related to food, including both fiction and nonfiction books.

    Titles for the rest of 2019 are:

    August 22 – The Food Explorer: The True Adventures of the Globe-Trotting Botanist Who Transformed What America Eats by Daniel Stone

    September 26 – The Last Chinese Chef by Nicole Mones

    October 24 – Buttermilk Graffiti: A Chef’s Journey to Discovery America’s New Melting-Pot Cuisine by Edward Lee

    November 21 – Gourmet Rhapsody by Muriel Barbery

    December 19 – American Terroir: Savoring the Flavors of Our Woods, Waters, and Fields by Rowan Jacobsen

    Kellogg-Hubbard Library can request copies of books through their Interlibrary Loan system, so if you cannot afford to buy the book or don’t want to buy it, you can get a copy at the library. You will need a library card in order to do that. Library cards are free for anyone who lives in Montpelier, East Montpelier, Berlin, Calais, Worcester or Middlesex. If you own a business in Montpelier, but live outside of the service area, you can get a free library card. If you don’t live in those towns, the annual fee for a library card is $40, $35 for people 65 and older.

    If you would like to purchase a copy of the book through Bear Pond Books, please let us know. If five or more people order the book, Bear Pond will give you 20% off, but there have to be at least five ordered. If you’re interested, let us know as early as possible, so we can contact the bookstore and let them know how many books to order.
