That probably sounds odd. What I mean is, Janet Lee Carey's book launch party for STEALING DEATH is tomorrow night, and I'm making cookies for the event!
I can't wait to see the book in the flesh, so to speak, after getting to hear it week by week at our writing group - isn't the cover gorgeous?
The setting for STEALING DEATH is a drought-parched land inspired, in part, by the African desert. So I thought, what better cookies could I make than an African-inspired recipe? I hunted around and found a few: African Corn Meal Cookies, Kashata Na Nazi (coconut candy from Uganda), and Makroud, an Algerian date cookie. Yum. I'm not sure which to try first.
Janet will have a live Marimba band and will be serving Kuhl, a coffee-like drink directly from her novel, and other treats. The party is at Parkplace Books in Kirkland tomorrow eve. I hope to see you!
