MAC’s Lunch & Learn: Tales from the Dark Side of Victorian Life
Wednesday, Feb. 26 at 12 p.m.
Cape May United Methodist Church, 635 Washington St., Cape May
Meet other curious learners during this winter’s Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities by MAC Lunch & Learn series. This week’s Lunch & Learn will look at how a fascination with “the bizarre” was as in-fashion as white linen in the Victorian age, also known as the heyday of the freak show. From the midway to St. Bart’s pathology museum, to the headlines ripped from horror novels, exhumations, hauntings and demonic possessions, hear of the dark ribbon that threads the lacework of Victorian history. Presenter: Melissa Palmer. These events are free for MAC members and $5 for non-members. Bring a brown lunch with you; beverages and light desserts will be provided.
