Thursday, December 19 from 7:00 – 8:30 pm
Reading Public Library – Community Room
Join us for an evening with Louisa May Alcott, 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.
