A story of family secrets and discovery, of confession and revelation, Monique Truong's second novel Bitter in the Mouth follows Linda Hammerick, who has a secret sense—she can "taste" words. She falls for names and what they evoke: Canned peaches. Dill. Orange sherbet. Parsnip (to her great regret). In this celebration, actress Cindy Cheung will appear as Linda Hammerick in a reading followed by a miracle berry taste-a-thon. What will you taste after eating the fruit that makes everything sweet?
