Chocolate and Joanne Harris

The author of Chocolat is coming to Des Moines! Chocolate and books, two of my favorite things. Did you see the movie? The scene in which Alfred Molina literally wallows in chocolate? Oh my. This author totally gets chocolate. But guess what? Joanne Harris has a new book out. And it's a sequel to Chocolat! In The Girl With No Shadow Vianne still concocts chocolates, but in Paris instead of small-town Lansquenet-sous-Tannes. The delightful dollop of magic remains. And we get to re-visit the chocolaterie run by a woman who knows exactly which chocolates we need. The author, Joanne Harris, will be speaking at the Central Library Thursday, May 1, at 7 PM. As with all AVID events, attendance is absolutely 100% free.
