The Junior League of Tampa Publishes First-Ever E-book
Women leading change, move popular cookbooks to a new digital platform.
It was more than 50 years ago when The Junior League of Tampa, Inc. published its first cookbook as means to fund their programs and projects. Now, advancing with new technology, The League has released its first-ever e-book—The Life of the Party.
The Life of the Party cookbook, originally published in 2003, is Volume I in a series from The Junior League of Tampa’s Culinary Collection. This colorfully unique body of delicious recipes, embraces the attitude that less is more; less time spent in the kitchen and more time with your guests. It’s with that same theme, that the evolution of Life of the Party to an e-book came about.
“We are very proud to be the first Junior League to publish an e-book cookbook,” said Ashley Hoff, Cookbook Co-Chair. “We’ve done the research and realize that to keep up with the busy nature of people’s daily lives, we need to offer our books in a fresh, new way that makes it easy to access and appeals to all audiences.”
This e-book cookbook is a welcomed addition to the award-winning cookbook series, which also includes The Gasparilla Cookbook, EveryDay Feasts and Savor the Seasons.
For 88 years, the Junior League of Tampa has been committed to community service and volunteerism. In that time, The League has leveraged cookbooks, as a fundraiser and a way to spread awareness throughout the community. Since its humble beginning, with 22 women, The League has grown and transitioned to more than 700 active members and devotes more than 60,000 hours of service to the community each year, while spending more than $250,000 annually on projects.
The e-book is available for download on more than 50 digital stores including the Amazon Kindle Store, iBooks, Kobo and the Barnes & Noble NOOK Bookstore. It retails for $10.99. Proceeds from the sale of this cookbook will be reinvested in the Tampa community through The League’s projects and programs.
