Mister Ron's Basement #1622
March is Women's History Month!
We are wrapping up our 19th Century Women Author readings with a week of stories from Fanny Fern's 1857 book, 'Fresh Leaves.'
Today Fanny looks at the popular 'Guide to Young Wives' books of the 1850s, and gives their authors a piece of her mind in 'Moral Molasses; or, Too Sweet by Half.'
Time: approx six minutes
