Food Lover’s Book Club is a bimonthly discussion of a cookbook or food-related book led by award-winning food writer Amanda M. Faison. The free gathering takes place at the Ross-Cherry Creek Library.

What’s life without chocolate? Join food writer Amanda M. Faison and Sienna Trapp-Bowie of Boulder-based Fortuna Chocolate to discuss the prized treat. They’ll dissect the meaning of bean-to-bar, talk technique, and wax rhapsodic about recipes. Pick up a copy of Chocolate Desserts by Pierre Hermé and come for the chat. Bonus: Samples!

Free, 6 p.m., Ross-Cherry Creek Library, 305 Milwaukee St., 720-865-0120
