The History of Chocolat in Life and Art – Lecture

January 30, 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm


The White Lake Chamber Music Society will present the 2024 Winter Lecture Series, featuring engaging and stimulating presentations! From January through March, a wide variety of expertise and talent will be showcased. This is sponsored by MADL – the Muskegon Area District Library.

On January 30, retired American and World History teacher Erin Walling will present “The History of Chocolat in Life and Art” at 7:00 p.m. at the Book Nook and Java Shop, 8744 Ferry St. in Montague.

Chocolate isn’t just about your favorite candy bar. It has a rich history and a dark past that still impacts civilization and culture today. Learn more about the origins of chocolate in MesoAmerica and how it travels across continents as it shaped history, art, and the lives of millions. The best part: eating chocolate is involved!

Erin Walling has 39 years of experience in public education.  Although she is not an expert in art history, this self-described “history nerd” is an authority on keeping high school students entertained and sneakily educated by regaling the class with historical anecdotes, fun facts, and interesting slides.  “Seekers of knowledge” will enjoy the benefits of her detailed research and the ability to weave historical facts into a compelling story.

Admission is $10 at the door. For more information, please call 231-329-3056 or visit us online at
