Colonial Goodwife program Oct. 12 at the Trumbull Library

The Not-So- Good Life of the Colonial Goodwife will be presented by Velya Jancz-Urban at the Trumbull Library, 33 Quality St., on Wednesday, Oct. 12, at 6:30 p.m.

In this entertainingly-informative presentation, The Not-So- Good Life of the Colonial Goodwife, even history buffs will learn a thing or two. The Not-So- Good Life of the Colonial Goodwife not only makes audience members laugh and grimace, but it also honors our foremothers. It’s not about quilting bees and spinning wheels, it’s an interactive presentation about the little-known issues faced by New England’s colonial women.

Jancz-Urban has traveled throughout the east coast presenting to libraries, historical societies, women’s groups, and conferences, and has upcoming university, book festival, and women’s history month events scheduled. She regularly hosts book club gatherings at her 1770 Connecticut farmhouse.

The lecture is the first of three in The Mallett Foundation fall/winter lecture series. Additional lectures scheduled are A Supernatural Evening with Jeff Belanger on Wednesday, Nov. 9, and The Queen’s Jewels on Wednesday, Dec. 14.
