Contributed  by Marlena Barber

Laupus Library at East Carolina University is hosting the National Library of Medicine traveling exhibit “The Literature of Prescription: Charlotte Perkins Gilman and ‘The Yellow Wall-paper’” in the Evelyn Fike Laupus gallery on the fourth floor of the library. On display June 10 through July 21, the six-banner exhibit explores a time during the late 19th century when women were challenging ideas about gender that excluded them from political and intellectual life. Artifacts from The Country Doctor Museum and books from Laupus Library’s History Collections will also be on display, including books by Dr. Weir Mitchell, Victorian era stimulants and tonics, and 19th century birthing supplies.
