Ojai native Anna Thomas' new book, LOVE SOUP, will be in bookstores on September 21, and they're having the hometown party at Treasure Beach on October 3rd at 2pm. Stop by to taste some soup, have a glass of wine, chat, and she'll sign books. She says, "Soup saved my life over and over -- it's the way I survived in the wee kitchen. I could still have great home-made food, and have people over for casual dinner parties -- I could keep cooking. I fell in love with soup all over again, and had to write a book about it."
