DARIEN, Conn. -- The Darien Library will kick off its Fall Book Discussion Series this week.

The series begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday with the discussion of Michael Paterniti’s "The Telling Room: A Tale of Love, Betrayal, Revenge, and the World's Greatest Piece of Cheese" at the Darien Library, according to a news release.

According to the book's synopsis, "in the fall of 1991, at Zingerman’s deli in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Michael Paterniti encountered a piece of cheese. Not just any cheese. This was Paramo de Guzmán, a rare Spanish queso, which was one of the most sought-after delicacies on earth. Paterniti travels to Spain and discovers that the story of this cheese is nothing like the idyllic slow-food fable he first imagined. Instead, he’s sucked into the heart of an unfolding mystery, a blood feud that includes accusations of betrayal and theft, death threats, and a murder plot. As the village begins to spill its long-held secrets, Paterniti finds himself implicated in the very story he is writing."

The Fall Book Discussion Series will also include discussions on "Transatlantic" by Colum McCann at 7 p.m. Oct. 30, with the Nov. 20 discussion to be determined. Library staff members will lead the discussions, according to the release.
