Fairfield Museum and History Center Women’s History Month Lecture

03/05/2017

370 Beach Rd., Fairfield, CT Phone: 203-259-1598.

Women's History Month Lecture: The Not-So-Good Life of the Colonial Goodwife Sunday, March 5, 3pm – 5:30pm. Co-sponsored with the League of Women Voters. Members: Free; Non-Members: $5. In 2011, Velya Jancz-Urban and her family bought a foreclosed farmhouse in Woodbury, Connecticut, unaware of what the house would reveal. Behind the walls, surprises and secrets waited to be exposed. This became the spark for the novel, Acquiescence. Moving into this 1770 farmhouse ignited Velya's interest in the colonial era. While researching her novel, she became infatuated with colonial women. 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.
