For years, I’ve been wanting copies of Mastering the Art of French Cooking by the amazing Julia Child and Simone Beck. One of the perks of being a school librarian means occasionally scoring items like these when you are conducting a massive weed. My school was once an all girls school, which I think accounts for the giant cooking section, even though we don’t offer cooking classes here. These beauties were on the chopping block–and hadn’t been checked out since 1988. So away they went, and into my hands.
I’m so excited to be a proud new owner.
