There’s a new series of programs coming to the Robbins Library, and we think those programs are a little bit different. ALT+Library is a series aimed at folks who are 20 – 30 somethings who are looking to expand their community, have fun, and maybe learn something new.
And speaking of learning something new…how much do you actually know about the history of Burlesque in America? Some, maybe. But probably not enough to own bar trivia night.
That’s where the library comes in. Our first program under this new banner is American Burlesque: The Naked Truth. It’ll be presented by burlesque historian, Liz Rieur, and will trace the history of burlesque* in America, from the 1860’s – to present with a special focus on Boston’s own burlesque history.
