In partnership with Marin Munchies
Award-winning author Birgitte Rasine talks chocolate in ways you've never known it: its incredible 5,300 history, its fascinating mythology, and all the good things it brings our body, mind and spirit. Come discover a world where jaguars talk to hummingbirds,1,000-year-old cacao pods release their secrets in the light of the full moon, and feathered serpents guard the very soul of chocolate's history. This is story time for kids and parents, the young and the young-at-heart, and especially everyone who loves chocolate.
Birgitte's latest book, The Jaguar and the Cacao Tree, is a mythic fantasy about the history, mythology, and biology of cacao that readers young and old alike are calling “addicting”; chocolate experts and educators alike "can't put the book down." Think of it as a blend of Harry Potter and The Chronicles of Narnia, doused in chocolate.
And what chocolate author event would be complete without a taste of the real thing? Local craft chocolate maker Katja Reitemeyer, owner of Marin Munchies, will regale us with samples of her delicious chocolate and tell us all about the production and sourcing of the world's most favorite food.
