Left Bank Books, 109 Church St., will welcome back best-selling cookbook author Brooke Dojny Saturday, Aug. 18 at 2 p.m. to sign her new book “Lobster! 55 Fresh & Simple Recipes for Everyday Eating.”

Dojny is well-known for her cookbooks, “Dishing Up Maine” being a long-time favorite for its beautifully doable local recipes. Now that lobster is more affordable than ever, this particular summer is the perfect time to learn all the delicious ways to consume the delectable “ocean bugs.” Her book even includes the best Maine salads and desserts to accompany a lobster meal.

Copies will be available of both of the above-mentioned titles, as well as Dojny’s “New England Home Cooking: 350 Recipes from Town and Country, Land and Sea, Hearth and Home.” For more information or to reserve copies, call 338-9009 or stop by.
