Event description: Mama Mia! Welcome Lidia Bastianich as she signs copies of her new book. Looking for an intergenerational family story or just a fan of America's favorite Italian chef, Nonna's Birthday Surprise delivers a savory treat for all.

It's Nonna Mima's birthday, and Nonna Lidia and her grandkids are determined to throw her a surprise feast! While planning the evening's menu, Nonna Lidia shares her memories of growing up on the farm during each season of the year, gardening her own fruits and vegetables, and being surrounded by animals of all kinds. After a trip to the farmers' market, Lidia and the kids prepare a pasta primavera, perfect for a family celebration! Ren�e Graef's warm, heartfelt illustrations capture Lidia Bastianich's love for her family and the food that they share. Included are eighteen recipes that emphasize the ingredients abundant during each season and the use of leftover ingredients, while "Kids Can" suggestions note ways that kids can participate in the making of the meals.
