MORRISTOWN, NJ - Take a sweet journey to Europe at the non-profit German Language School of Morris County (http://www.glsmc.org), during the School’s semi-annual book and bake sale and open house on Saturday March 14, 2015 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.  The school is located on the campus of the Morristown Beard School, 70 Whippany Road in Morristown, NJ.

“Funds from the book and bake sale pays for additional classroom and interactive learning materials, while we share a taste of our heritage with homemade desserts and pastries typically found in bakeries and coffeehouses throughout Germany, Austria and Switzerland,” says GLSMC School Principal Michaela Greco.  “The day also offers a chance to learn about our language programs and meet the teachers.”

The GLSMC’s Book & Bake Sale Committee has selected a variety of books for both new and experienced readers, including board books, picture books, chapter books and award-winning novels that help families expand their foreign language library. 

Germans, Swiss & Austrians often take a work or meet friends at a coffee house or bakery at four o’clock to enjoy a hot espresso or coffee, accompanied by a sweet treat. Typical desserts found in a German bakery include a variety of fine butter, sugar and fruit cookies, cream and fruit layer cakes, fruit tortes, strudels and pastries filled with mousses and creams.
