Women's Literary Tea


The Women’s History Tea has been renamed and will now be known as Women’s Literary Tea, to be held on Saturday, March 6, 2021 at 3:00 p.m. as a virtual event.


In connection with the Prop’s celebration of Indy’s Bicentennial, Dr. Wendy Gamber, Chair of the IU Department of History, will be our featured speaker to talk about her book, “The Notorious Mrs. Clem, Murder and Money in the Gilded Age.” This is the story of an Indianapolis housewife who was suspected of two gruesome murders in 1868. There will be a Q&A session after the presentation which should be especially interesting since the Prop Book Club has chosen this as their read for February.


We will also have an on-line auction in conjunction with the Tea as a fundraiser. It will begin on Monday, March 1, at Noon and end after the Tea on March 6 at 6:00 p.m. We will have some very nice items including a lovely china tea set, a Downton Abbey Gift Set and an autographed copy of Dr. Gamber’s book.


For further information, go to https://www.thepropylaeum.org/upcomingevents or call the Prop at 317-638-7881.


You can sign up for the Tea online now. Auction registration information will be available later. Please join us, and feel free to wear your favorite spring hat and enjoy a cup of tea as you watch!
