Historian and author Bryant Simon will talk about his new book based on based on fives years of research and visits to 450 Starbucks in 12 countries, Everything but the Coffee: Learning about America from Starbucks.
“Simon knows more about Starbucks–and about why so many Americans find perfection in their lattes–than anyone. He connects our deepest desires to be good, smart, ethical consumers with our equally strong yearning to consume in an authentic way. Our coffee, Simon shows, is us.”
“The New Bowling Alone.”
