Victorian huswifery with the Alcotts: Fun with hometown friends

We had a wonderful turnout last night for my presentation, ‘”Housework ain’t no joke …’ Victorian Huswifery with the Alcotts.” Hosted at the beautiful Community Barn in my hometown of Grafton, MA by the Historical  Society and the Grafton Public Library, 50-60 people turned out for my talk outlining the domestic life through the lens of the Alcotts spanning 80+ years of the 19th century.

You can read the paper and listen to the talk here.

Thank you to those of you that messaged me yesterday — your encouragement meant a lot!

The best part? A good friend coming to the talk (and keeping my husband company with her good humor).

Thanks to all of you who came — I enjoyed presenting to you and talking with you. Time for me to join the Grafton Historical Society!

You can read the paper and listen to the talk here.

I also invite you to read the other essays I have posted — you can find them here.
