IDS Prof to Discuss Coffee

Dr. Gavin Fridell of the International Development Studies Program has just published a new book about the global coffee trade.  Titled simply, Coffee, it explores the myriad relationships, and billions of dollars, which comprise an industry built around the provision of one of the world's most popular drinks.

To find out more about the industry, and the book, join us tomorrow (Thursday, October 16) at 3 o'clock as Dr. Fridell will talk about his motivation for writing the book, his research and what he has learned as a result.

The talk will be held in Room LI135 on the Library's main floor.  Everyone is welcome (and coffee and tea will be provided).

This is the first in the Library's new Faculty Author Series which is intended to help bring Saint Mary's faculty research to a wider audience.  More of them, on a wide range of topics, will be announced in the coming weeks.
