Wanted, a Beautiful Barmaid

 You are warmly invited

Victoria University Press invite you to the launch of Sue Upton's Wanted, a Beautiful Barmaid: Women Behind the Bar in New Zealand, 1830-1976

Wanted, a Beautiful Barmaid is a social history of women in the liquor trade and the controls, social and legal, written and unwritten, with which they had to contend. It begins in the 1830s when control over the sale of alcohol was first mooted and ends in 1976, when the last of the regulations that applied specifically to females was removed.

Please join author, Sue Upton, and guest speaker, Charlotte McDonald, for the launch of this fascinating history.

Thistle Inn, 3 Mulgrave Street, Thorndon
Monday 15 July, 6pm
All welcome.
