Food historian and tea specialist Judith Krall-Russo will present a lecture titled "Life as a Domestic Servant" on Sunday, September 24 at 2:00 pm in the Community Room of the West Caldwell Public Library, 30 Clinton Road.

In the Victorian and Edwardian eras, domestic servants represented a large majority of jobs available for the working class. Learn about a servant's day, which started from early morning and lasted late into the night. What was a typical servant's meal like? What type of clothes did they wear? How did they entertain themselves? And what happened when other job opportunities opened up for the working class?

This program, co-sponsored by the Friends of the Library, is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required. To sign-up, call the Library at 973-226-5441 or sign-up online at http://tinyurl.com/WCPL-Events.
