The Victorians: A Morbid Taste For Mourning

Monday, October 16, 2017

Join us for a spirited show-and-tell with period attired historians, Linda Salatiello and Evelyn Auger. This lively reenactment will show the significance and symbolism of mourning dress, prints, jewelry, correspondence and burial practice and how some of these rituals are still with us today. Linda Salatiello and friends have performed this program across New Hampshire. They are historians with a passion for historical costuming and share a talent for storytelling and reenacting a somber event with humor and wit.
