Book & Cooking Club

by Maryann Ridini Spencer
Join me in my country kitchen!

Aloha Friends!

I’m currently in the process of coordinating ongoing in-person speaking engagements to coincide with the release of my upcoming novel, Lady in the Window (May 9, 2017, SelectBooks), as well as my other writing, producing and business endeavors.

In addition, I’ll  also be speaking to groups via speakerphone and/or SKYPE during their book club meetings as well as other organizational gatherings.  How cool is that?  These “electronic engagements” will allow me more opportunity to connect with you! For speaking engagement bookings, in addition to talking about my novel, we can discuss a host of other topics (listed below).


  • Books – My novel, “Lady in the Window (once a speaking engagement is booked, a Book Discussion Guide with sample questions and topics will be provided to your group)
  • Movies
  • Women’s issues
  • Home & Family
  • Cooking & Simply Delicious Living
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Living Aloha
  • Environmental Sustainability
  • & More!

I also invite you to cook up some recipes from Lady in the Window for our gatherings.  Just visit my blog at simplydeliciousliving.com and navigate to  The Plumeria Café.  With enough notice, we can also  “cook” a recipe together!
