Not-So-Good Life of the Colonial Goodwife

Wednesday, March 8th at 7:00pm, at the Killingworth firehouse. Perhaps women need to be reminded of how far we’ve come in order to see how far we still can go. Discover what life was really like for New England’s colonial women – because we’ve always been curious about: menstruation, sex & birth control, childbirth, sickness & medicine. The Not-So-Good Life of The Colonial Goodwife not only makes audience members laugh and grimace, but it also honors our foremothers. It’s not about quilting bees and spinning wheels – it’s an interactive presentation about the little-known issues faced by New England’s colonial women.

Velya Jancz-Urban is a teacher, author, former Brazilian dairy farm owner, and expert on New England’s colonial women. Her presentation, The Not-So-Good Life of the Colonial Goodwife, is a result of the research completed for her novel, Acquiescence.

The entertainingly-informative program will be held at the Killingworth Firehouse. Even history buffs will learn a thing or two! The event is free but space is limited. Please contact the library to reserve your space.
