Crystal King to Speak on Feast of Sorrow: A Novel of Ancient Rome

Thursday, May 11th at 7:00PM
 Library Assembly Room

Feast of SorrowAuthor Crystal King will speak on her book Feast of Sorrow: A Novel of Ancient Rome, much of which she wrote IN the Belmont Library! The story of Rome’s notorious foodie, Marcus Gavius Apicius, told from the viewpoint of his slave and cook, Thrasius. An enthralling, delicious tale that will transport you into the crowded marketplaces and baths of ancient Rome and leave you hungry for ancient fare. Kirkus Review writes, “[i]n her addictively readable first novel…the food lore is fascinating and the time period is inherently dramatic…aficionados of all things SPQR will eat this up.”

crystal16colorCrystal is a novelist, editor, professor, social media professional, and critical & creative thinker. Her work as a writer is the thread that ties my broad experience together. Crystal is currently writing my second novel, THE SECRET CHEF, about a famous Italian Renaissance chef, Bartolomeo Scappi, who was the cuoco segreto (private cook) to several Popes.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Library, the annual Author Series features local authors discussing their work. The series runs from Fall through Winter each year.
