Sady Doyle: Dead Blondes and Bad Mothers w/ Talia Lavin

Aug 14 | Wed | 7:30PM - 8:30PM |
View Website

Women have always been seen as monsters. Men from Aristotle to Freud have insisted that women are freakish creatures, capable of immense destruction. Maybe they are. And maybe that's a good thing…. Sady Doyle, hailed as "smart, funny and fearless" by the Boston Globe, takes readers on a tour of the female dark side, from the biblical Lilith to Dracula's Lucy Westenra, from the T-Rex in Jurassic Park to the teen witches of The Craft. She illuminates the women who have shaped our nightmares: Serial killer Ed Gein's "domineering" mother Augusta; exorcism casualty Anneliese Michel, starving herself to death to quell her demons; author Mary Shelley, dreaming her dead child back to life.
