Lecture: Lilli DeJong with Janet Benton

It's not every day that a major publisher puts out a novel set largely in Germantown. Janet Benton's Lillit De Jong is the diary of a young Quaker in 1883 Philadelphia who gives birth at a charity for unwed mothers. Come hear some of what Benton learned about baby farmers, wet nursing, women's poverty, the recovery of starving infants, prejudice against unwed mothers, Quaker ways and practices and so much more.
