In honor of the upcoming Independence Day celebration, Florida State University Libraries Special Collections would like to feature a small selection of books from our collections that relate to the holiday.
This post has inspired us to create a new section to this blog: Cook the Books. This new category will highlight recipes taken from books in our collections and a picture of the finished product, with instructions. Please keep an eye out for the next post in this section.
