Authors of July's featured titles suggest book-inspired fare including Sangria recipes with superpowers, "pain and pleasure" cookies, hot takes from a Kentucky college town and the Wisconsin Playboy Club resort, a British one-pot supper, Royal Family cocktails, a global taste tour of New York City, and family-favorite pizza toppings.

Novelist Miranda Cowley Heller shares a recipe and dinner menu to pair with The Paper Palace (see our Costco Connection book club feature and recipe).

And authors Pamela Terry and Sarah Blake generously respond to our requests from book clubs by offering food pairings for their novels.

Enjoy summer book club gatherings, reading, and cooking!
