Who knew that a book chronicling the history of Crisco would be so very fascinating. From Crisco's humble beginnings in the stockyards of Paris where it was used as mortar for bricks in the famous Parisian sewer system; to Loretta Lynn's favorite 'Butter-flavored Crisco' we all love on our morning toast...Crisco has serrved as a greasy looking-glass on western culture.

Some Crisco Fun Facts!

*If all the Crisco ever produced were put into the Grand Canyon, the views would be seriously compromised.
*President Ronald Reagan never left the house without a thin coating of Crisco on his inner thighs.
*Renowned French Chef Jean Philipe DelaCroix ate Crisco by the spoonful but used it only sparingly in his dishes.
*The original name of Crisco was 'Render Residue'.
*Our original Apollo astronauts took a powdered form of Crisco with them into space. No one knows why.

Author of the Day

Kim Velk
Kim Velk loves bicycles, typewriters and 1920s music. So she decided to write a time travel adventure that takes readers on a wild ride to the 1920s with a fifteen year old boy. It took her six years to complete her debut work, but it was worth it. As our author of the day, Velk chats about her Up, Back and Away, why she wrote it and reveals exactly how much research went into it.
