Visits from Louisa
I can also promise you a visit from “Louisa” herself in the guise of Executive Director Jan Turnquist. Jan performed in my old home town of Westborough, MA recently and she graciously allowed me to record her entire one hour performance (which was wonderful, by the way, really engrossing). This way we can have sage words from our favorite author for several podcasts to come. I wanted to give a big “shout-out” to Westborough Cable TV for their assistance. They were originally going to videotape the performance but could not due to illness yet they still loaned me (a resident of next-door Grafton) the equipment necessary to get a clean recording. That was downright generous of them and I am thankful to Karen Henderson and the crew for their help.
Chats with experts
I can promise too lots of interesting interviews with experts and scholars as many will attend the Conversational Series and I can grab them for a quick chat.
You can participate too!
The podcast will also be open for you to participate. I will be accepting audio feedback that will be played on the next podcast. I am also hoping that in the future I can feature group discussions with two or three people together (have to figure out the technology for that). Scholars, teachers and fans alike will be most welcome.
I am hoping to have the first episode ready for mid June if all goes well. I’ll keep you in the loop. There will also be information on how to subscribe to the podcast so you never miss an episode.
We’re stoking the Alcott flame! (as John Matteson is fond of saying :-))
