192 Main St., Torrington, CT
6:30 pm. in the Torrington Historical Society Carriage House Velya Jancz-Urban and her daughter Ehris Urban will present a program which explores the lives of children between the late sixteenth and late eighteenth centuries. It will offer compelling information on colonial children, including Native American and slave children, who are too often left out of conventional coverage. Topics to be discussed include birthing and childrearing practices, parenting, children's health and education, naming, gender, play, and rites of passage.
