Join Karen Babine in Milwaukee as she reads from her book All the Wild Hungers: A Season of Cooking and Cancer at Boswell Books. This memoir in the form of micro-essays chronicles Karen's experiences finding ways to nourish and care for her mother after she's diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. This poignant, bittersweet exploration of illness, consumption, fertility, grief, and the communal power of food is a “lush gem of a book, both heartbreaking and heart-making” (Amy Thielen).
