Rescheduled: The Transatlantic Pineapple on October 18

You may have read her articles on cooking, identity, and memory; soon our club member Nina Scott '59 will share her earlier findings on how the pineapple traveled across continents and oceans in an intriguing chapter of food history.

Alicia Lopez Nieto '91 will host this delectable and fascinating conversation over Zoom on Sunday, October 18, 3:00-4:00pm.

Here is a taste of Nina's writing during the pandemic, courtesy of the Daily Hampshire Gazette.

We hope to see you for this Sunday afternoon teatime pop-up!
