Grass Lake Author Robin Mather Wraps Up "Community Read" Program in Dexter

The local author will share tips with residents on how to find healthy, local food on a budget.

The Dexter District Library will close out this year's Community Read program on Nov. 10 with presentations by Grass Lake resident Robin Mather.

A native of Grass Lake, Mather will discuss her book, The Feast Nearby. Her book is a collection of essays and recipes from a year of eating locally on a budget of $40 a week. With insight and humor, Mather explores the confusion and needful compromises in eating locally and forges connections with the farmers, vendors, and growers who provide her with sustenance. The library will also have plenty of tantalizing, local, and healthy treats for visitors.

The Community Read program was presented as a joint project between the
Chelsea District Library, Dexter District Library, Grass Lake branch of the Jackson District Library, the Manchester District Library and the Stockbridge branch of the Capitol Area District Library with generous support from the Dexter Wellness Coalition and the Chelsea-Area Wellness Foundation.

The event takes place at 1 p.m. Saturday, and is free and open to the public.

I read her book a few months ago and enjoyed it very much. She definitely has her heart in the right place and is not afraid to show it. We too are eating in the way that she describes in her book. I look forward to meeting her.
