Free Friday: Mad, Dangerous Love
February 10 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pmFREE
Love ain’t easy; in fact, it can be quite messy. We begin Valentine’s Weekend 2017 with a look at the more complicated side of love, from vengeful poisons to demonic lovesick raving with lectures, crafts, beer and snacks. Scholar Astri Hustvedt presents Hysterically in Love: The Battle Between Medicine and Religion in a 19th Century Parisian Hysteria Ward, and Masters of Social Gastronomy speak about Romance and Revenge: A History of Aphrodisiacs and Poisons.
