On Friday September 11th we are proud to present "Victorian Gossip Girl: Annie Adams Fields." Join the Boston author, philanthropist, and original Gossip Girl as she dishes on the lives of her closest literary friends! Mrs. Fields had an incredible influence on literary decisions at her husband’s Tremont Street publishing house - Ticknor and Fields (the forerunner to Houghton Mifflin Publishing Company) - and had a great ear for gossip! Counting Nathaniel Hawthorne, Oliver Wendell Holmes, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow amongst her closest friends, she witnessed a great deal of Victorian revelry at her waterside museum in Beacon Hill. No short of a Gossip Girl, Mrs. Fields wrote about her guests’ embarrassing moments in her novel "Authors and Friends" and shares them with you during an intimate teatime conversation.

There will be cookies, laughter, disbelief, and even some blushing cheeks, when you hear the tantalizing tales of the Victorian Gossip Girl!
