A Curious High Tea With Catherine Jinks

Click to enlarge
When:
Sun 29 Apr 2018
Time:
2.30pm - 5.00pm
Cost:
$45 for talk and High Tea (per person)
Details:
Catherine Jinks will be giving a talk based around her book Charlatan.

Thomas Guthrie Carr was charged by Eliza Gray with mesmerising her and raping her while she was under his influence. But if mesmerism and Mr Carr were shams, was Eliza really raped?

Discover the life of Thomas Guthrie Carr, stage mesmerist – who lied, fought and sleazed his way around Australia and New Zealand between 1865 and 1886 – is more than just a fascinating piece of social history. It’s also a mystery, a true crime story and a slyly humorous portrait of a man whose ferocious pursuit of fame and fortune made him an oddly contemporary figure.

With a supporting cast that includes the Duke of Edinburgh, the Mad Dentist of Wynyard, the Nunawading Messiah and a host of shady mesmerists, spiritualists, phrenologists and hired goons, Charlatan delves deeply into a forgotten side of colonial history.

Tickets only available via online purchase via the website link. No Psychic Readings at this event.
Location:
20 Mile Hollow Cafe, 68 Great Western Hwy, Woodford
