Location: Online Class

This is a live, online class via Zoom. 
First comes loves, then comes marriage, then comes … a little bit of rat poison in their coffee cup. When love goes wrong, out comes the Victorian obsession with female poisoners: delicate and seductive, these ladies made headlines in the age of yellow journalism for offing their lovers with poisoned food.
Come hear their stories and … hey, does this taste like almonds to you?
