No More Damsels in Distress: The Development of the Fictional Female Detective, Wallingford Public Library, Wallingford CT

(Wednesday, 7:00 p.m.) [snowdate: Thursday, March 14]

The first female detective appeared in fiction in 1861, well before the creation of Sherlock Holmes. Since then, detecting women have gone from young Victorian ladies to gray-haired spinsters to tough private eyes. In this talk, Carole Shmurak, Professor Emerita at Central CT State University, mystery author, and leader of the Wallingford Library Mystery Group, will discuss the ways that fictional female detectives have changed along with society’s notions of what is “a suitable job for a woman.”
