Meet the Author: Amy Azzarito
Friday, April 30, 2021
The Larkspur Library is excited to talk with local author Amy Azzarito who will be discussing her book The Elements of a Home.
The Elements of a Home: Curious Histories behind Everyday House Hold Objects, from Pillows to Forks.
With tales from the kitchen, the bedroom, and every room in between, these pages expose how napkins got their start as lumps of dough in ancient Greece, why forks were once seen as immoral tools of the devil, and how Plato devised one of the earliest alarm clocks using rocks and water—plus so much more.
This event is made possible by the Friends of the Larkspur Library.
