Girlfriends Literary Society
Charlotte by ShevelowCharlotte by Kathryn Shevelow
Thursday, November 10, 7pm
A woman of rare talents and high spirits, Charlotte Charke (1713-1760) was an actress who delighted in scandalizing proper society. The daughter of Colley Cibber, a brilliant comic actor famous for foppery, Charlotte was unconventional—even by the standards of her theatrical family. She raised eyebrows with her disdain for needlework and her taste for guns, but when she stepped on stage, none of it mattered. Charlotte seemed destined for greatness. But she would rebel. After making her reputation by playing men, she began dressing in breeches offstage as well. In this fascinating work of socio-cultural history, Kathryn Shevelow captures Charlotte in all her guises, from her time among the dueling divas of the glamorous Drury Lane Theatre to her trials as a strolling player and puppeteer, to her comeback as the author of My Unaccountable Life, one of the first autobiographies ever written by a woman.

Annex Gallery
Dede's Flying CarpetsDede Moore's Flying Carpets
Opening Reception: Friday, November 4, 6-8pm
Our first event in November goes back to Loganberry's first beginnings, with rug merchant Dede Moore.  Dede retired in 2001, but that doesn't mean she stopped travelling and collecting.  In fact, she has more time to travel, more stories to share, and some fabulous decorative objects.  There will be rugs of course, and kilims, textiles, ethnic clothing and jewelery, pillows, and other interesting stuff.  Come see her latest finds in the Annex Gallery all this month, and visit her during the Opening Reception to hear some stories, talk rugs, and celebrate 20+ years of Dede's dealings in woven art. 

I hope to see you browsing at Loganberry soon!
