Bringing Literature to Life: Tiny Waists and Big, Fat Lies

February 8 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Are you fascinated with Victorian era clothing? This lecture is tailor-made for you!

Pantaloons, petticoats, and peplums galore! Learn about all the fashion phases and the many layers of the “properly” dressed lady.

A feast for the eyes and some truth for the soul: What’s the secret behind Scarlett’s 17-inch waist? Did women really die from “arsenic” dye? Did corsets really cause permanent deformities?

This is your opportunity to look under the Victorian skirt without getting a slap to the face!

This program is made possible through your support of the Forsyth County Public Library Friends & Advocates.
