NCRL Speaker/Humanities Washington Speaker’s Bureau STICKY SUBJECT

Mar 30, 2019 to Mar 30, 2019
Description:
The History and Culture of Sugar
with Julia Harrison
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.
