FARMINGTON — The Shiretown Bookers recently announced its Winter exhibition “Great Books about Great Food,” running Dec. 7-Feb .11, in the Bookers’ gallery area in Mantor Library, 116 South St.

This exhibition will explore the glories of the table and nature of the feast. Some remarkable books will be on display, though none of them will be specifically cookbooks. These are books about great food and the ways that we gather to share it.

The show will be a Members’ Exhibition, as the books will be drawn almost entirely from the collections of the Bookers’ sixty members.

The Shiretown Bookers (The Community Friends of Mantor Library) are a group of book lovers and collectors who support the university library by fostering its relationship with the community. The group provides free exhibitions and lectures on bookish subjects throughout the year.
