Village Talk: Amesbury Women & Their Lives at the Turn of the 20th Century


Join our October Village Talk to learn about local women’s daily lives at the turn of the 20th century. Local author Edith Maxwell draws on research of her own and others and brings in vignettes from diaries and oral histories of life-long residents to tell the stories of women living in our neighboring town of Amesbury when it was bustling with carriage factories, textile mills, and other workshops.

Edith is a national bestselling mystery author, her books covering a variety of places and characters. Her historical Quaker midwife mysteries are set in Amesbury, and her local foods mysteries in our local countryside.She worked as a software technical writer for almost two decades but now writes fiction full time and at one time owned and operated the smallest certified-organic farm in Essex County, Massachusetts. 

Village Talks are offered by the Greater Newburyport Village for the enrichment of the community. Village Talks occur every third Wednesday of the month at the Newburyport Senior/Community Center, 331 High St., Newburyport. Talks are free and open to all.
