Conversation gets sweet with the Cake Mix Doctor, Anne Byrn


Good conversation is even better when paired with a good piece of cake. HLF will serve both at our next Community Conversations event when Anne Byrn, bestselling cookbook author of The Cake Mix Doctor, will be at the Downtown Huntsville Library on Friday, Sept. 9 at 2 p.m. to discuss her upcoming book, American Cake.

"In my new book project, American Cake, to be published in the September of 2016 by Rodale, I will share the history of American cake, researching the real stories behind iconic cakes and lesser known but important cakes, from Colonial times to the present. I hope American Cake lets us look into the world from which we came and the one we inhabit today. It will be a diverse, delicious, and fascinating story with 115 recipes and photos," says Byrn on her website.

The ticket price of $25 per person includes a sample of two of the cakes featured in the book. American Cake comes out on Sept. 6, and copies will be available for sale and signing. Proceeds benefit programs and materials at Huntsville-Madison County Public Library.
