iRead book for January: Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe

Posted on: Monday, December 23, 2013 at 9:30:00 am

Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe. Join the iRead Book Club on Monday, January 6 at 6:00pm as we discuss Fannie Flagg's Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe.

Folksy and fresh, endearing and affecting, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe is the now-classic novel of two women in the 1980s; of gray-headed Mrs. Threadgoode telling her life story to Evelyn, who is in the sad slump of middle age. The tale she tells is also of two women--of the irrepressibly daredevilish tomboy Idgie and her friend Ruth--who back in the thirties ran a little place in Whistle Stop, Alabama, a Southern kind of Cafe Wobegon offering good barbecue and good coffee and all kinds of love and laughter, even an occasional murder. And as the past unfolds, the present--for Evelyn and for us--will never be quite the same again...*
