An Evening with Louisa May Alcott

An Evening with Louisa May Alcott

Join us for an evening with the author of Little Women who will bring us stories from her life: family friendships with Thoreau and Emerson; her unconventional upbringing in poverty; and the family love that inspired her to write a beloved American classic.

Due to a "minor carriage accident," 21st century audiences have the opportunity to "meet" Louisa May Alcott through the living history portrayal of Jan Turnquist, Executive Director of Orchard House in Concord, MA.

This is the 151st anniversary of this enchanting book and in December will be the release of the newest movie adaptation.

The event is free and open to all audiences through the generous sponsorship of the Friends of the Reading Public Library.
