Murderous Mothers: A Dark Celebration of Mother’s Day

This is an online ZOOM event. You’ll receive a special link and password with your ticket purchase on the day of the event (or sooner).

Tired of the Betty Crocker image of motherhood? The origins of Mother’s Day are darkly tragic so why not take a look at the darker side of mothers? This virtual talk will take you on a historical “tour” of mothers who murder that will leave you with a new appreciation of your own dear mom (and hang out with her on Zoom!). The stories will range from the surreal to downright horrifying. The talk is a fundraiser for QED to help them reopen when they can.

Marie Carter is an NYC-based writer and tour guide who hails from Scotland. She is a tour guide with Boroughs of the Dead, a macabre and ghostly historical walking tour company. She designed and leads the tour “Haunting Histories and Legends of Astoria.” She is also the author ofThe Trapeze Diaries and the novel, Holly’s Hurricane. Check out her writing and tours at www.mariewritesandedits.com.
