STICKY SUBJECT: The History and Culture of Sugar with Julia Harrison
Date: March 30, 2019 - Saturday
Time: 3:00 pm
Partner: Moses Lake Public Library/North Central Regional Library (NCRL)
When King Henry VIII wanted three pounds of sugar for his guests at an important banquet, he had a tough time getting it. Now the average American eats that much sugar in a single week.
Once a rare, exotic ingredient, sugar has become a dietary staple, leaving its sticky fingerprints all over the globe. Anthropologist and sweets expert Julia Harrison takes participants on a journey from ancient sugar cane plantations to modern candy factories, uncovering sugar’s economic and social significance. From slavery and mass migration to environmental changes and nutrition, the consequences of sugar’s rise are global – and not always sweet.
