 Whatever your favorite cocktail is, when you pour yourself a drink, you have the past in a glass. Tom Standage, digital editor of The Economist, opens a window into the past in this tour of six beverages - beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea, and cola. He has the ability to connect the smallest details to the big picture. These drinks influenced pivotal eras of world history, from humankindís adoption of agriculture to the dawn of globalization. A History of the World in 6 Glasses tells the story of humanity from the Stone Age to the 21st century. You may never look at your favorite drink the same way again. All are welcome to attend. Books are available at the Dole Branch Library one month before the discussion.
