Love Immemorial

Saturday, February 13, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join Nancy Rosin, President of the National Valentine Collectors Association, for this time-traveling presentation on valentines and other items that serve as expressions of love. In today’s world, valentines are generally relegated to children’s classrooms, but in the Victorian era (and before) there was a real need to give and receive tokens of love. Life was often shorter, distances longer, and sometimes friends, family, and lovers said goodbye without knowing if they’d ever communicate again. Objects of affection – be they romantic cards, hand-carved coins, locks of hair, or more – were touchstones for those left behind. Those traditions continued in death and mourning, and in many ways influenced the way we celebrate our modern Valentine’s Day.
