Join author Lucy Inglis as she discusses her critically-acclaimed book Milk of Paradise, a history of humanity through the poppy.
Inglis’ book takes readers on an epic journey, from ancient Mesopotamia to modern America and Afghanistan. It is a tale of addiction, trade, crime, sex, war, literature, medicine, and, above all, money. And, as this account vividly shows, the history of opium is our history and it speaks to us of who we are.
Our café remains open to the public when there are evening events taking place, serving a range of speciality coffees and teas, cakes, pastries, snacks, sandwiches, beer and wine.
