Book Clubs


The Kitchen Daughter is a great choice for book clubs: moving, multi-layered, and of course, delicious. If your book club likes to serve food before, during, or after discussion, you can have your members “cook along” by choosing recipes from the book to prepare, like Midnight Cry Brownies or a drink called The Georgia Peach.

Themes of the book you can use to kick off discussion include:

  • Grief and mourning
  • Asperger’s Syndrome and autism
  • How food brings people together
  • Relationships between sisters and between mothers and daughters
  • Ghosts or spirits and how we may feel someone is “with us” in the kitchen

You can find the official Reading Group Guide on the S&S site at this link, or on Oprah.com by clicking here.
