Coming up on Thursday, February 8 from 7 to 8:30 pm at the Brigham Hill Community Barn in Grafton, MA (my hometown), I will be giving a presentation on the Victorian housewife as seen through the experiences of the Alcotts:
I will explores the back-breaking work of the typical Victorian housewife through the experiences of Louisa May Alcott and her family. The Alcotts dwelled in all kinds of homes, from rural to city, from slum to mansion. Through their experiences I examine the love-hate relationship between 19th century housewives and the endless chores of cooking, cleaning, sewing and laundry.
The presentation will include a slideshow of pictures of various homes where the Alcotts lived, along with various tools they would have used in daily housework.
It is sponsored by the Grafton Historical Society in partnership with the Grafton Public Library.
The Brigham Hill Community Barn is found on 37 Wheeler Road in Grafton. It’s a beautiful setting for this presentation.
