Speakeasy Sunday (OR CHARM SCHOOL) ;) with Nicelle Davis ;)

For the Speakeasy this Sunday, I’ll make a woman of you—of anyone.

With snippets of text and images taken from a 1970s finishing-school teacher’s lesson-plan book, I’ve created a handmade chapbook. I hope to, in some small way, recreate a “Charm and Modeling School.”

The lessons of womanhood might help us understand the empowerment of roles (but will haunt us with the final question “Who am I?”)

Anyone who participates will get to keep a chapbook. Anyone who attends will leave in sparkle and with their own certificate of training completion.

Please join us. It is sure to be a haunting big-hair time.
