Women's Literary Tea

On March 6, join us for the story of The Notorious Mrs. Clem, as Wendy Gamber weaves the life and times of a charming and persuasive Gilded Age confidence woman, who became famous not only as an accused murderess but also as an itinerant peddler of patent medicine and the supposed originator of the Ponzi scheme. In her work Dr. Wendy Gamber, chair of the Department of History at Indiana University in Bloomington, explores women’s place in an evolving urban economy in the mid-nineteenth century.
