All Because of Grace Cookbook
On November 4th, a very special cookbook will be published. It is called All Because of Grace. It was inspired by the story of an amazing young girl, Grace Sturm. I was invited to participate in the cookbook project last summer by Jane Martellino, the librarian at the school in Connecticut where Grace was a student. Grace, an avid reader, had just begun the summer reading club when she first got sick and needed emergency brain surgery. Proceeds from the cookbook will help bring hope and comfort to children, like Grace, recovering from brain surgery. I am so happy that I got to meet Grace when I did an author visit at her school in October.
"All Because of Grace" is perfect for children, teachers, librarians, parents and extended families. People of all ages can use this book to create tasty meals and snacks. Each recipe is preceded by a story which will fill you with warmth, humor, joy and tenderness. Along with the recipes and stories by 130 other children's book authors, you can find my recipe for a holiday (or any season) quiche and the story of my friend Kathryn, my college roommate at Grinnell, who gave me the recipe. You can learn more about Grace and order your copy of the cookbook by going to the Yes! Grace Rocks, Inc.website.
