Rescheduled from May 17th.
This month’s choice is “Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe” by Fannie Flagg. We also have the second book in the series, “The Wonder Boy of Whistle Stop”, for those who’d like to continue the story. Both books are available for check out.
It’s first the story of two women in the 1980s, of gray-headed Mrs. Threadgoode telling her life story to Evelyn, who is in the sad slump of middle age. The tale she tells is also of two women-of the irrepressibly daredevilish tomboy Idgie and her friend Ruth, who back in the thirties ran a little place in Whistle Stop, Alabama, a Southern kind of Cafe Wobegon offering good barbecue and good coffee and all kinds of love and laughter, even an occasional murder.
