Audiobooks of the Month: Food, Family and Friends

Ah, November. Outside, crisp leaves are falling and a cold wind nips at your nose. Inside, fires are crackling and the smell of hot chocolate sweetens the air. The holiday season is upon us! This is a time for family and friends, for giving thanks, and for warm meals so rich and full they’ll put you to sleep. In celebration of this holiday season, we at Libro.fm have compiled a list of audiobooks sure to keep you wide awake and inspired.

Deemed “enthralling” by NPR, Bill Buford’s Heat will get you thinking (and laughing) like a New York restaurateur, just in time for cooking your Thanksgiving dinner.

Speaking of cuisine, check out Julie Powell’s Julia and Julia, her bestselling cooking memoir that became a major motion picture starring Meryl Streep!

Ever wonder what takes place behind the banquet room doors? Let Anthony Bourdain show you, through his NYT bestselling memoir Kitchen Confidential.

Mildred Armstrong Kalish’s Little Heathens, based on her life on a 1930s Iowa farm, is a heartwarming charmer with just the right dash of Americana to season your holiday evenings.

Get into the Thanksgiving spirit by reading Khizr Khan’s An American Family, a memoir that Kirkus Reviews says will “…remind us all why Americans should welcome newcomers from all lands.”
