For an author obsessed with all things Alcott,
does it get any better than this?
Launching a book about the most famous Alcott, Louisa, in The Barrow, a bookstore housed in a building owned by descendants of Anna Alcott Pratt in the heart of Concord, Massachusetts … it’s a dream come true.
A book store that is a treasure trove of books past and present, especially of the beloved authors of Concord.
An intimate setting at dusk with hosts who outdid themselves with their hospitality and with an audience of eager Alcott enthusiasts – what more could you want?
I want to publicly thank Aladdine, Jamie and Nancy for hosting me at their store. Although my presentation lasted just a half hour, the conversation afterward lasted well over an hour. Strangers brought together by their passion, all becoming friends. Even my husband had a good time! 😉
I read from Louisa May Alcott: Illuminated by The Message, sharing passages from Work A Story of Experience, Hospital Sketches and Little Women and their matching bible passages.
I shared how Louisa May Alcott is My Passion came into being and the role my late mother played in the creation of that blog.
It became a wonderful conversation on how the Alcott family has impacted our lives in quite personal ways.
It was my favorite kind of book event–organic.
Here is my presentation:
Thank you to my extended Alcott family!
