Celebrated and Notorious Women of the Victorian Era
If you are interested in Women's history and / or the Victorian era, don't miss the upcoming Thought Exchange program "Celebrated and Notorious Women of the Victorian Era."
The 19th century was populated by a bevy of beautiful, dangerous and courageous women. From the exploits of Lily Langtry and the treachery of Lizzie Borden to the nearly forgotten heroism of Nellie Bly, it was a time of change and opportunity.
Barbara Rusch, founder and President of the Ephemera Society of Canada, will explore the lives of some of the celebrated and notorious women whose achievements and infamy have made their mark on the fabric of this fascinating age.
The program will take place in the Toronto Reference Library's Beeton Auditorium on Tuesday, November 29, 2011. 1:00-2:00 p.m.
