Meet the author and sample chocolate!

IAS faculty member and chocolate industry scholar Kristy Leissle discusses a favorite indulgence at the signing for her new book Cocoa.

In this incisive book, Leissle reveals how cocoa, which brings pleasure and wealth to relatively few, depends upon an extensive global trade system that exploits the labor of five million growers, as well as countless other workers and vulnerable groups. Discover the possibilities for and constraints upon realizing a truly sustainable and fulfilling livelihood for cocoa growers, and for keeping the world full of chocolate.

As a delicious bonus, enjoy chocolate samples from Guittard Chocolate and Divine Chocolate.

Kristy Leissle is a scholar of the global cocoa and chocolate industries.
