All-star scholarly panel opens Summer Conversational Series 2018 honoring “Little Women”

It pays to keep up the Little Women Sesquicentennial site! I just saw today exciting information regarding the opening session for this year’s Summer Conversational Series at Orchard House. The theme, of course, is “Little Women in the 21st Century – 150 Years of Inspiration.”

Traditionally the opening session features a panel discussion. This year it is kicking off the series on Sunday, July 15 from 2:30-5 . The panel features 5 distinguished Alcott scholars:

According to the Little Women Sesquicentennial site, speakers and participants in this year’s series will examine why Little Women is still important in the 21st Century, what difference it has made over time in the world of literature, and what it means to readers today.

For further details, visit or phone 978.369.4118 x106. Online registration available after May 1, 2018.

I plan on attending the series as always and will post my notes for the sessions I attend. Hope you can join us!
