‘Oh, Those Tea Parties!’ with Suzanne Adair

March 24, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


‘Oh, Those Tea Parties’ with Suzanne Adair will be held on Thursday, March 24, at 7pm. During the American Revolution, patriot men wantonly destroyed tea to make a statement to the British.  Patriot women also used tea to communicate with the British—but subtly.  Suzanne Adair, author of award-winning mysteries set during the Revolution in North Carolina, discusses how ladies’ tea parties underscored the ways that women controlled the economy and blindsided the British. This hybrid program will be held both in-person at the Museum (with tea of course!), and live-streamed virtually via Zoom. When registering, choose the ‘virtual’ ticket option to receive the link for the stream. Those attending in person will be asked to wear masks when not drinking tea.
