Join us for a reading group discussion of "Margaret the First" by Danielle Dutton!

"Margaret the First" dramatizes the life of Margaret Cavendish, the shy, gifted, and unconventional 17th-century Duchess. The eccentric Margaret wrote and published volumes of poems, philosophy, feminist plays, and utopian science fiction at a time when being a writer was not an option open to women. Written with lucid precision and sharp cuts through time, Margaret the First is a contemporary novel set in the past, a gorgeous new narrative approach to imagining the life of a historical woman.
