L ibraries have a complex system of organizing their books, based primarily on the main subject matter of each title, and cataloged accordingly. Every once in a while, a book will come along that is a little more difficult to categorize. One such a book is "Walnut Wine & Truffle Groves: Culinary Adventures in the Dordogne," by author and Burbank native Kimberley Lovato and Florida-based chef Laura Schmalhorst. As a librarian, it would be difficult to consign this book to the cookbook section, as it has so much more to offer than just the recipes.

If you clipped the recipe last week, please discard it and replace it with today's revision. The last two paragraphs were accidentally omitted. I am so delighted to have an easy recipe from a local, highly praised chef released exclusively to our Sun readers. Most chefs' recipes require considerable re-working to make them appropriate for the home cook, but this one arrived in nearly perfect condition. Red snapper works best, but there's been a shortage of snapper, so if it's not available at your market, try tilapia.

As a longtime local, native-born American citizen of so-called white Anglo-Saxon Protestant lineage, who lives halfway between a heavily Armenian Hollywood district and Glendale; who frequents friends in Glendale regularly via the MTA bus line (180/181) that includes connections between the two communities, I would hope that if the United States were to decide that there is just not enough consensus among varied history experts for us to officially recognize the Armenians' tragic travails at the hands of the Ottoman Turks as "genocide" that Armenian and Turkish Americans could nevertheless bury the hatchet and look to a new future of coexisting in our various communities in respectful peace and harmony, including in Glendale.

Being supportive of her family has always been a part of 85-year-old Nena Kelty’s life, from the time she was a teenager entertaining with her father’s comedy act in England during World War II to helping her husband with his invention — a camping backpack called the Kelty Pack. In the early 1900s, Kelty’s father and uncle worked as the Jovers, entertaining at circuses, theaters and music halls throughout the world. When the act broke up at the beginning of World War II, her father brought her and her brother into the act. The 62-year Glendale resident talks about her life from 1939 to 1946 as an entertainer in her book “My Father Was Carmen Miranda: Memoirs of an English Show Girl” published in April by www. BearManorMedia.

Last week, at the same time we were commemorating the Armenian Genocide of 1915 in my community, the news from Europe did not sound very encouraging. I am referring to the rise of the rightists in France and many other countries on the continent. As an Armenian American, who like many others was born outside of his motherland, I urge everyone to pay attention to the current issue of the elections in France. True, no one is seriously expecting Mr. Le Pen to win, at least not in this round, but the important point is that he and his supporters cannot be written off. the kind of fear and provocation that they have tapped into are far-reaching.

The devastation in France and Germany that remained after World War II had such an effect on Tom G. Smith, he decided to record it on his camera. The unusual thing is, the Glendale resident was only 10 at the time. “I went to a camera store and bought the Baby Brownie Special made by Kodak,” he said. “It sold for $3 during the postwar years.” Traveling with his family in Orleans, France, and in Germany, he photographed the areas most ravaged by bombs, Smith said.
