Margaret the First

Join us for the March book club to discuss Margaret the First by Danielle Dutton.

Written by Washington University in St. Louis professor Danielle Dutton, this novel explores the life of Margaret the First, an unconventional seventeenth century Duchess. The eccentric Margaret wrote and published volumes of poems, philosophy, and feminist plays at a time when being a writer was not an option open to women. After the English Civil War, her work earned her both fame and infamy in England: at the dawn of daily newspapers, she was “Mad Madge,” an original tabloid celebrity. Yet Margaret was also the first woman to be invited to the Royal Society of London. 

Book club will begin with a showcase of seventeenth century books, followed by a discussion of the novel.
