Via Umbria Book Club: The Book of Unholy Mischief Feb. 25

Join Via Umbria for a journey back in time to Venice during the Renaissance, when the city teems with rumors of an ancient book that holds the secret to unimaginable power. Luciano, a penniless orphan with a quick wit, is plucked off the streets and initiated into the palace chef's rich and aromatic world. Unfortunately, he and finds himself caught in the madness of Venice after witnessing a shocking murder.

Written by Elle Newmark and originally published as The Book of Unholy Mischief (later reprinted as The Chef's Apprentice), this book delights the senses and breathes fresh life into an age defined by intellectual revival and artistic vibrancy. A luminous and seductive novel, it is, at its heart, a high-spirited tribute to the fruits of knowledge and the extraordinary power of those who hold its key.
