I spent all day editing my presentation and making the powerpoint. It came out to 74 slides! I'll be mainly discussing the careers of Chatelaine's women illustrators 1928-1932, which was a high point for them. After that, the Depression reduced their work by half and women never did get that back, while men continued to get work. I will also be saying a bit about why illustrators in general have been left out of Canadian art history.
The talk will be at the Toronto Arts and Letters Club, around 9pm. Doors open at 8pm.
