Thursday, December 4, 2014. In keeping with the fall and winter holidays this year, we will be reading several short stories:  "The Thanksgiving Visitor," "A Christmas Memory," and "One Christmas," by Truman Capote.

These three stories appear in one particular book:  A Christmas Memory: One Christmas, and The Thanksgiving Visitor (Modern Library) which is inexpensively available at Amazon.com.  The stories also appear in other collections of Capote's work and are available at our public libraries.

Review:  Taking its place next to Breakfast at Tiffany's and In Cold Blood on the Modern Library bookshelf is this new and original edition of Capote's most famous short stories: "A Christmas Memory, " "One Christmas, " and "A Thanksgiving Memory." All three stories are distinguished by Capote's delicate interplay of childhood sensibility and recollective vision.

About the Author: Truman Capote was born in 1924 and died in 1984. Based on his own boyhood in rural Alabama in the 1930s, "A Christmas Memory" was originally published in Mademoiselle in 1956 and later was included in Breakfast at Tiffany's.  He was raised in various parts of the south, his family spending winters in New Orleans and summers in Alabama and New Georgia. By the age of fourteen he had already started writing short stories, some of which were published. He left school when he was fifteen and subsequently worked for the New Yorker which provided his first - and last - regular job. Following his spell with the New Yorker, Capote spent two years on a Louisiana farm where he wrote Other Voices, Other Rooms (1948). He lived, at one time or another, in Greece, Italy, Africa and the West Indies, and travelled in Russia and the Orient. He is the author of many highly praised books, including A Tree of Night and Other Stories (1949), The Grass Harp (1951), Breakfast at Tiffany's (1958), In Cold Blood (1965), which immediately became the centre of a storm of controversy on its publication, Music for Chameleons (1980), and Answered Prayers (1986), all of which are published by Penguin.

Our featured guest of the evening will be winemaker Nancy Bentley, owner of Kinkead Ridge Winery, recently inducted into the Cincinnati Culinary Hall of Fame by Les Amis d'Escoffier at a spectacular dinner in the Hilton Netherland! Nancy has done it all, from nourishing the vine as a Pinot Noir grower in Oregon for 10 years to wine pairing to pours on the international scene.

Wines featured at the event will include:

Cabernet Sauvignon - well structured wine, lighter in style, displays classic aromas of red fruit and black cherry.

Cabernet Franc - the wine displays a harmonious complexity with cherry overtones and modest tannins. Aged in premium American and French oak barrels.

Traminette - a new world hybrid grape with a character reminiscent of Gewürztraminer from Alsace.

Riesling - the perfect Thanksgiving wine! Off dry. Honeysuckle, apple and rose petal notes precede a flinty finish.

Viognier/Roussanne - a Rhone style blend with the kiwi and guava aromas of Roussanne merging with the orange blossom and golden raisin aromas of Viognier.

White Revelation - a winegrower's blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Albariño and Pinot Blanc.
