The Lowell Offering

“Absorbing, funny and thoroughly entertaining – one of MRT’s best in years.” – Lowell Sun review of Lost Laughs by Andy Bayiates and Aaron Munoz

In 1840 in Lowell, MA, a group of factory workers began publishing the world’s first magazine written solely by women; it was called The Lowell Offering. This is the story of the magazine’s editor, Harriet Farley, and a labor activist, Sarah Bagley – and the rise and fall of their friendship, the magazine, and Lowell’s “Mill Girl” culture.
