“Hungry ghosts exist in a land of limbo, between the worlds of the living and the dead. They are the spirits of people who often died hungry, prematurely, and unjustly.”
Delightfully creepy, deliciously weird, and a little gross. Bring the dumplings for a book club potluck with Aurelien and Catrina as we discuss “A Banquet for Hungry Ghosts” by Ying Chang Compestine, a collection of YA Chinese ghost stories about murder, revenge, and most importantly, food. For fans of spooky campfire tales with a touch of history. Plus, recipes!
