SEC Book Club

The SEC Book Club has a story for you!

This past summer the Staff Engagement Committee (SEC) Book Club read Finding Freedom by Erin French. This book is a memoir written by the founding chef of The Lost Kitchen in Freedom, ME. Derived from an underground supper club started by Erin in Belfast, The Lost Kitchen has become one of the most renowned restaurants in America. The restaurant is in such high demand, in fact, that they had to get creative with their reservation system. To make a reservation at The Lost Kitchen, people mail in a postcard for the luck-of-the-draw. The postcards are pulled at random and people are contacted to set up a reservation for sometime that season. With 40 tables, open 4 days a week for 6-8 months a year, it may take ages to get in or it could be this year! The Lost Kitchen begins accepting postcard reservation submissions each spring and the 2023 reservation submissions have opened – learn more here!


Started in 2021, the SEC Book Club is a joint partnership between the Staff Engagement Committee and Ohrstrom Library. Check out the titles here to catch up, and then watch for information on the latest pick in an upcoming Pelican Scoop.

The next pick is: I Have Some Questions For You by Rebecca Makkai.
