Teenage girls today are told they can achieve anything. Their 14th-century counterparts weren't so lucky. At Mrs. Dalloway's (2904 College Ave., Berkeley) on Sunday, May 23, local author Barbara Quick discusses A Golden Web, her new historical novel based on the life of Alessandra Giliani, the world's first female anatomist, who risked everything to avoid an unwanted marriage and the cloister. 4 p.m., free.
