Join independent literary historian Rob Velella on this walking tour celebrating two of the most popular women writers of the 19th century: Fanny Osgood and Fanny Fern. One was a popular sentimental poet; the other was a groundbreaking writer of prose. Both incited scandal throughout their lives, and each used their writings to present a unique picture of 19th-century domesticity. Their lives, their associations, and their works will be highlighted.
