Elizabeth Zunon holding her book, Grandpa Cacao

Elizabeth Zunon, who grew up on the Ivory Coast in Africa and spent her teenage years in Guilderland, just published a book she wrote and illustrated, “Grandpa Cacao: A Tale of Chocolate From Farm to Family.” She is the little girl pictured on the cover of the book with the grandfather she knew through family stories but never met.

On Christmas Eve, people from different religions and parts of the world shared a meal of Mexican molé and margaritas in Sub-Saharan Africa.

BERNE — On Dec. 5, Christmas concert-goers here can listen to distinctively American music with African roots — jazz.

This is appropriate since the concert will benefit a native Hilltowner’s mission to help save the tree in Tanzania from which the clarinet comes, and also to teach Tanzanians to play the instrument she loves.
