“Housekeeping ain’t no joke:” Victorian Huswifery with the Alcotts

Presented by
Susan Bailey,
author of
the Louisa May Alcott is My Passion blog

 

Thursday, February 8 at 7pm
Brigham Hill Community Barn
37 Wheeler Road, Grafton, MA

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.

Ongoing – Every Sunday, 11am to 2pm
