The “curious institution” of slavery has held an important place in American fiction from Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin published in 1852 to Toni Morrison’s 2008 novel, A Mercy. 


The book discussion on the 5th will focus on A Mercy, as an exemplar of how modern writers have dealt with the historical forces that caused slavery to thrive and the effects of its existence on slaves and slaveholders alike.

Sherry Chappelle is the leader of the Browseabout Book Club and will be moderating the discussion, focusing on the historical bases of Morrisons’ work and that of other modern writers who have addressed the issue in their recent fiction.  These include James McBride and John Barth whose stories are based on the Delmarva, as well as writer Alexandra Stockett whose widely read work The Help investigates how the effects of slavery still are felt in our modern society.

If you have read or are reading any of these books, please join us for this discussion.  Browseabout Books has offered a 10% discount on purchases of A Mercy or The Help up until 2/5/11, for readers who mention the Museum’s book discussion.

Clear Space Theatre Company will also be bringing you Dirty Blonde:  The Down And Dirty Story of Mae West.  When?  February 3 – 5 and 10 – 12 at 7:00 p.m.  On February 6 and 13 at 3:00 p.m.  Tickets are priced at $5-25 and are available on line at, via phone at 302-227-2270 or by visiting the box office Tuesday – Friday, 9:00 – 5:00 p.m., at 20 Baltimore Ave.


Dirty Blonde, a play with music by Claudia Shear, captures the bawdy essence of Mae West and explores the life of the legend of stage and screen.  A 4 person cast, company members David Button, Michael Mathias, Dana Peragallo, and Doug Yetter will bring the 18 characters of Dirty Blonde to life.

The story will be told in a series of flashback vignettes.  Mae West was an incomparable star of vaudeville, Broadway, and film in the first half of the 20th century.  She was hailed as one of America’s first sex symbols.  Her plays Sex and The Drag were hits, but landed her in big trouble with censors and the law.  She served 8 days of a 10 day prison sentense for Sex and stars of The Drag (men in drag) were arrested and taken out of the theatre during a performance.  Her most popular stage work, Diamon Lil, toured for years.

Mae West played a pivotal role in the creation of the Motion Picture Production Code, which regulated the material that could be shown or said on film.  Mae West skirted around censors by using her now famous double entendres and sexual innuendos.  Many of these are live on today, including “A hard man is good to find” and “When I’m good, I’m very good.  When I’m bad, I’m better”.
