Women's History Month Program: Women and Chocolate

A Taste for Chocolate curator Carol S. Ward will present an illustrated lecture discussing women's changing roles in the importation, distribution, and consumption of chocolate.

After the Women and Chocolate lecture, join us at 3pm in our bookshop for a special book signing. Meet chocolate reviewer and amateur chocolate maker R.M. Peluso, author of Deep Tasting: A Chocolate Lover's Guide To Meditation.

"This absorbing book is a unique and fascinating guide to the taste, aroma, and even the making of fine artisanal chocolate...all chocolate lovers will learn much from this delightful and instructive read. Highly recommended!"

--Michael D. Coe, co-author, The True History of Chocolate
