Book Trivia- Joyce and Jim Lavene

Happy Wednesday! Today's host are Joyce and Jim Lavene. Joyce and Jim are the authors of Give Em Pumpkin to Talk About (and many other great reads)


Since we are soon approaching fall and their new book is about pumpkin, Today's trivia is a bit different.




Pumpkins! I love them! Not just because they taste good in pies, breads, and cookies, but because you can do so many things with them. They are decorative as jack-o-lanterns, lighting our Halloween festivities and wonderful tureens that hold soups and stews.​


What else do you know about pumpkins? Here's a few trivia questions to find out.

True or False

1. One of the largest producers of pumpkins in the US is California.

2. Pumpkins are native to Germany

Give 'Em Pumpkin to Talk About
A Pumpkin Patch Mystery
By Joyce and Jim Lavene
First in a New Series

Richmond attorney Sarah Tucker returns to sell her family’s abandoned farm in Misty River, Virginia despite unanswered questions about her grandparents’ disappearance sixteen years earlier. Sarah was only twelve when she went to visit and found her grandparents had vanished. No amount of searching has brought answers. Now Sarah is faced with other issues when a man is killed who claimed to have information about what happened to her grandparents. She learns of a Confederate chest of gold that is said to be buried on the property, and treasure hunters who are willing to do anything to get their hands on it. Were her grandparents murdered for the gold? Sarah can’t sell the land and go back to her life until she has answers. But the cost of the answers may be her life. Includes farm-fresh recipes!
