‘Sacred and Inviolable’: Sally Wister and Deborah Norris Logan, the Roots of Salon Culture

February 20, 2012

Deborah Norris Logan (from 'Sally Wister's Journal')

On Thursday March 1st at 12:30 p.m., Stenton will host Sacred and Inviolable’ Sally Wister and Deborah Norris Logan: Female Friendship and the Roots of Salon Culture, a lecture exploring friendship between Quaker women. This program will be presented by Rebecca Rosen, a doctoral student at Princeton University.

In a culture in which religious ties were also social and educational, relationships between women and girls combined expressions of friendship with literary exchange. Sally Wister and Deborah Norris Logan exemplified this typical 18th century female friendship amongst Pennsylvania Quakers.

This event is free. Feel free to bring a bag lunch. Please RSVP by calling 215.329.7312.
