Add this Event to Calendar 06/20/2023 07:00 PM 06/20/2023 08:00 PM NSPC: The Not-so-Golden Life of the Gilded Age Wife



Although Gilded Age women in the upper and lower classes had many differences, they had one similarity. Women, viewed as second best to men, were expected to be content with this role in society. Topics include: ovariotomies, sedation of menopausal women, free-bleeding, tapeworm larvae, meat masks, mourning, and hidden mother photos. Presented by Ehris Urban & Velya Jancz-Urban; the Grounded Goodwife.

The North Shore Programming Consortium consists of five local libraries (Bayville, Glen Cove, Gold Coast, Locust Valley and Oyster Bay) that have come together to bring our patrons more of a variety in adult programming in a more cost effective way. We hope you enjoy the programs now accessible from the Consortium!

Registration begins on Friday, May 26 at 9:30 am
