NYT Bestseller Therese Oneill to Speak at Stayton Public Library
09/22/2017
STAYTON, Ore. -- The Stayton Public Library is excited to announce a visit featuring author Therese Oneill on Thursday, October 19, 2017 at 7:00 pm in the E. G. Siegmund Meeting Room. There will be a reception accompanying the event.

Therese Oneill is the author of the New York Times bestselling book Unmentionable: The Victorian Lady's Guide to Sex, Marriage, and Manners. Oneill lives in Oregon with her family and writes humor and rare history articles for many. different popular outlets, including Mental Floss, The Week, The Atlantic, and Jezebel. You can meet her at writerthereseoneill.com

Praise for Unmentionable:

“Oneill's done her research on what the Victorian lady was expected to tackle, from dinner-party etiquette to arsenic as skin care….Unmentionable largely avoids setting itself up for comparison….Presenting the surreal and infuriating past is not enough — the vagaries of courtship, running a household, and taking a bath fall under a modern and distinctly snarky lens. There's perhaps never been a better time to snicker a little at what's come before us; Hamilton, Kate Beaton, Horrible Histories, and Drunk History have all laid plenty of groundwork for turning the Good Old Days into a cabinet of morbid curiosities.” –NPR.org

The Stayton Public Library’s speaking events for 2017 are made possible, in part, by funding from the Marion County Cultural Corporation and the Stayton Friends of the Library.
