We're pleased to be part of the Reader Meet Writer series of online events hosted by the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance.

The event is free but registration is required. Please CLICK HERE TO REGISTER.

If you elect to attend, we will email you on the day of the event with the link & password required to attend on Zoom.

From talented new writer, Yaffa S. Santos, comes A Taste of Sage, an unforgettable, heartwarming, and hilarious rom-com about chefs, love, and self-discovery that is the perfect cross between The Hating Game and Sweetbitter.

Lumi Santana is a passionate chef with the gift of synesthesia—she can perceive a person's emotions just by tasting their cooking. Inspired by a mix of Dominican cuisines, Lumi opens Caraluna, a nontraditional fusion restaurant in Inwood, NY, only to succumb to financial struggles shortly after. Julien Dax, a celebrated chef known for his acid tongue and brilliant smile, is dedicated to the faultless preparation of classic French cuisine, offering no room for personal flair at his successful, midtown Manhattan restaurant, DAX.

Yaffa S. Santos was born and raised in New Jersey. A solo trip to Dominican Republic in her teenage years changed her relationship to her Dominican heritage and sparked a passion for cooking and its singular ability to bring people together. Yaffa is a graduate of Sarah Lawrence College, where she studied writing and visual art. She is a member of the Romance Writers of America (RWA). She has lived in New York, Philadelphia, Santo Domingo, and now lives in Florida with her family.


Like most of our events, this event is free. If you decide to attend and to purchase the author's book(s), we ask that you purchase from Malalprop's. When you do this you are supporting our work and keeping more dollars in our community. Thank you!
