FABS Handpress Era Zoom Group

March 11 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Sponsored by FABS

All are welcome to join us for an hour of presentations and discussion of printed books and other materials before 1800. The Handpress Group meets the second Monday of each month. In honor of Women’s History Month, the March session features Elizabeth Canning discussing A Narrative of the Life of Charlotte Charke (1755), the first autobiography in English by a gender non-conforming person. (Charke was an actress and author who not only performed male “breeches” roles onstage, but also lived and worked as “Mr. Brown” offstage for many years.) The presentation will be followed by an open session in which attendees are invited to hold up a book authored, owned/read, crafted or published by a woman.
