“The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake” author to speak in Louisville today

I’m still on my kick of reading books in which food plays a main character, so I’m psyched that the author of a book I’ve mentioned on the blog will visit Louisville tonight.

Aimee Bender, the author of The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, will read passages from her novel at 7 p.m. today at Carmichael’s Bookstore at 2720 Frankfort Avenue, according to the Courier-Journal.

This novel isn’t just about food. Rather, it’s the story of a girl who can taste what people were feeling when they cooked the food she eats. As weird as it sounds, the novel works because of Bender’s great writing.
