In creating a small Go Big Read exhibit on the first floor of Memorial Library, librarians brainstormed a list of food-related titles (literary and non-fiction). Not all the books were included in the exhibit, but we thought some of you might enjoy the list (in no particular order, compiled by Jill Rosenshield, Special Collections):
