“Noble Companions and Immortal Labors”*:
The Alcotts, Thoreaus, and the Quest for Social Justice
Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House SUMMER CONVERSATIONAL SERIES
Sunday, July 16 – Thursday, July 20, 2017
Transcendental neighbors and thinkers Amos Bronson Alcott and Henry David Thoreau shared ideals and hopes for changing society. Ever interested in improving the world to make it a better place to live in, they and their families worked publicly and also behind the scenes to stand up for social justice and put themselves on the line for others. The women as well as the men were committed to furthering the cause of justice, freedom, and equality in their communities and in the world at large.
Speakers and participants in this year’s Series will examine the engagement of the Alcotts and Thoreaus, through their public and private actions and writings, in their quest for social justice.
Please submit your one-page proposal for presentation, including title, description, and brief bio, to Lis Adams, Director of Education, and Jan Turnquist, Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Deadline is March 3, 2017.
*Bronson Alcott Journal, February 1847.
