Dietland by Sarai Walker (HOUGHTON MIFFLIN HARCOURT)

Wednesday • July 27 • 6:30pm

Mill Creek store

Join us for discussions of the best in contemporary titles on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm.

Plum Kettle does her best not to be noticed, biding her time answering fan mail for a popular teen girls' magazine until she can get weight-loss surgery. But soon after Plum notices that she's being followed by a mysterious woman, she falls down a rabbit hole into a world of women who live life on their own terms. Part coming-of-age story, part revenge fantasy, Dietland is a bold, original, and funny debut novel that takes on the beauty industry, gender inequality, and our weight loss obsession—from the inside out, and with fists flying.

The Botany of Desire by Michael Pollan (RANDOM HOUSE)

Sunday • July 31 • 4pm

Molbak's Garden + Home, 13625 NE 175th St, Woodinville

Gardeners and book lovers, join us the last Sunday of every month to discuss fiction and non-fiction books about gardening at Molbak's Garden + Home in Woodinville.

Every child learns about the mutually beneficial dance of honeybees and flowers: The bee collects nectar and pollen to make honey and, in the process, spreads the flowers' genes. In The Botany of Desire, food expert Michael Pollan ingeniously demonstrates how people and domesticated plants have formed a similarly reciprocal relationship. Through the stories of four familiar species—the apple, the tulip, marijuana, and the potato—Pollan illustrates how each plant has evolved to satisfy humankind's most basic yearnings—sweetness, beauty, intoxication, and control—and in doing so, made themselves indispensable.
