What's for dinner? We recommend celery root soup, from our book 'Zuppe: Soups from the Kitchen of the American Academy in Rome.' Chef Mona Talbott describes the soup as "luxurious" and "simple to prepare," perfect for satisfying a craving for a creamy rich soup.

Markets of New England - The Little Bookroom

Weekends in late October are the perfect time to enjoy some New England fall foliage and visit a farmers' or craft market before they close for the winter. Look to Christine Chitins's 'Markets of New England' for times, locations, and descriptions of markets in New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, and beyond.

Did you know that the French poet Charles Baudelaire had at least 29 addresses in Paris? Or that six of the thousands of drinking fountains in Paris have sparkling carbonated water? Or that the shortest street in Paris is rue des Degrés, at just 5.75 meters (about 19 feet) long?

For more indispensable and superfluous facts about Paris, read our new book 'Everything (or Almost Everything) About Paris' by Jean-Christophe Napias, translated and introduced by Simon Beaver.

"The Brooklyn we discover in David Attie’s wonderful photographs is the same magical kingdom we read about in novels and see in paintings. He shows kids playing by the wharf overlooking Manhattan, people doing their laundry, and friends sharing a few drinks at the local bar -- all captured with an extraordinary eye and a real tenderness of perspective. It’s a miracle that some of these things still hold true for Brooklyn. Let’s face it—if you have a good friend from Brooklyn, you always have someone watching your back. David’s pictures remind me why I love this place and its people so much — and why I’m so glad this too-long-forgotten artist’s work is being seen again."

—Bruce Weber, on the photography of David Attie, featured in our book 'Brooklyn: A Personal Memoir' and at the new exhibition at the Brooklyn Historical Society
