John Barricelli, owner of Norwalk's SoNo Baking Co., will appear Wednesday, Sept. 12, at the Fairfield Woods Branch Library to discuss his newest cookbook.

Barricelli will be at the branch at 7 p.m. to talk about "The Seasonal Baker: Easy Recipes From My Home Kitchen to Make Year-Round."

The book brings baking with fruits and vegetables within reach for home cooks, the library said in a news release. It includes 135 recipes, including breakfast treats, quick breads, poached fruits, cookies, pies, cakes, quiches, pizzas and other baked goods.

Before opening his own bakery in Norwalk, Barricelli worked for many years at Martha Stewart's magazine and appeared on the style maven's television and radio shows

His presentation is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required because space is limited, the library said. The branch is at 1147 Fairfield Woods Road.
