The standard game today is called “partnership auction pinochle.” (Wikipedia)

Lunch & Learn: Liberty in a Soup
May 3 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Join us at the library for Lunch & Learn! This month we will be learning about the tradition and history behind the Haitian meal known as soup joumou.

Every New Year, and in celebration of their independence, Haitian families gather together to feast in honor of a line of ancestors that fought for their freedom. The centerpiece of the festivity is the joumou soup, a traditional soup dating back centuries ago. The joumou soup is a concretization of war and victory, oppression and emancipation, and the deeply rooted celebratory traditions of the Haitian culture.

This mildly spicy soup is traditionally based on a large winter squash, along with beef, potato, plantains, and vegetables. A thin pasta such as vermicelli or macaroni and a small amount of butter or oil may also be mixed in.

The Friends of the Vermillion Public Library will be serving bowls of this hearty soup during the program! And as always, guests are of course welcome to bring their own food.
