Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion, Germantown, Philadelphia

  • The Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion 200 West Tulpehocken Street Philadelphia, PA, 19144 United States (map)

This is a very special event at a Victorian mansion-museum in the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia, where the fictional Lilli de Jong was raised. First, the director of the Mutter Museum, Robert Hicks, will speak about medical matters connected to Janet's historical novel, including childbirth, infant care, and breastfeeding in the late 1800s. He'll also show related artifacts from the museum. Then Janet will talk about her research in Germantown and elsewhere, and read from the novel (a part set in a Germantown mansion resembling the Ebenezer Maxwell mansion). A Q&A will follow.
