Consumptive Chic: A History of Beauty and Disease

Sunday, November 18

Join us for an author talk and book signing with Dr. Carolyn A. Day. Day will discuss the history of beauty and disease in her book, Consumptive Chic. Enjoy Hors D'oeuvres and Cash Bar. Books will be available for purchase and signature. This event is free and open to the public. “Impeccably researched and beautifully executed, Consumptive Chic tells the surprising, wholly engrossing story of how a wretched disease became both fashionable and aesthetically pleasing. This is a relentlessly intelligent study, one that will find a wide and admiring audience.” – Mark Smith, Carolina Distinguished Professor of History, University of South Carolina, USA
