Year of No Sugar: Eve O. Schaub (Burlington)

Event date: 
Thursday, May 22, 2014 - 7:00pm

Join Eve O. Schaub for an eye-opening, honest and often hilarious account of learning to live without sugar and, along the way, discovering what it’s doing to our bodies.

Sugar—more than salt, cholesterol or even fat—is currently public enemy #1 for our health. The average American downs over 22 teaspoons a day, an overdose linked to cancer, diabetes, obesity and heart disease.

In an age when sugar is continuously unmasked as a health villain, the Schaub family spent twelve months without added sugar of any sort: no fructose, no refined cane, no molasses, no honey, no maple syrup, no corn syrup-in an attempt to live healthier and better. Along the way, Eve Schaub became a sugar sleuth, science geek, and stand in for the rest of us who aren't quite ready to shun the sugar just yet. It's a fascinating experiment that reveals just how tightly we're all held hostage by sugar, and what it takes to kick the habit.

Eve O. Schaub holds a BA and BFA from Cornell University, and a MFA from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Her personal essays have regularly been featured on the NPR station WAMC. She lives with her husband and two daughters in Vermont.
