“The Nutmeg’s Curse”: Join the next LOE Book Club!

Air Date: Week of

Join the Living on Earth Book Club on November 28th at 4 p.m. Eastern on Zoom for an interview with award-winning author Amitav Ghosh. His book ‘The Nutmeg’s Curse: Parables for a Planet in Crisis’ uses the haunting history of how nutmeg became a staple of the spice rack to reveal how colonialism and the commodification of the Earth’s resources has led us to the climatic tipping points and global crises we face today.


CURWOOD: Nutmeg is the spice we use to give a warm aromatic flavor to our cooking, especially around the holidays, but there’s a cold truth about its supply. The newest book from Amitav Ghosh is called “The Nutmeg’s Curse: Parables for a Planet in Crisis.” It uses the haunting history of nutmeg to reveal how resource extraction from the poor to benefit the rich has led us to the present global crises. Join me for our next installment of the Living on Earth Book Club on November 28th at 4pm Eastern for our live discussion with Amitav Ghosh. To register for this free event, visit the Living on Earth website at loe.org/events.
