The event will begin at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18, in the Taharaa Room of Noa Noa Wood Grill and Sushi Bar, 310 Eastlake Dr., Warsaw.
Dr. Elliot Engel will again be speaking. The Author Dinner benefits literacy programming in Kosciusko County. Kosciusko Literacy Services provides books to at-risk preschool children and tutors for adult students.
Engel traces the phenomenal ancient origins of wine and continues the story through the wide and often wild popularity of wine today. Special attention is given to the competing drinks which almost destroyed wine’s popularity in the 17th Century and to the unexpected consequences of the Muslim prohibition of all spirits beginning in 700 A.D.
With his witty and insightful speaking style, Engel is the quintessential teacher as he combines education and entertainment. Engel is the educator everyone wishes to have leading the path to learning.
