Spending the holidays with Louisa May Alcott, from Discover Concord magazine

I am pleased to present an article that was recently published in the Winter edition of Discover Concord magazine.

You can find the article on page 12:




Here is a tease:

“The purpose of … Alcott’s juvenile writing, was to teach morality. What makes these stories rise above the popular but tedious didactic tales of the day was the genuine love, respect and understanding that the author had for her readers. The virtues of love, patience, industry, and generosity that she imparted were qualities she had listed in her diary as personal goals.[1] Children somehow knew that Louisa May Alcott was their friend who understood their struggle to be good.”

There are many other interesting articles in the magazine including an article on influential historical women in Concord plus a story on Elizabeth Peabody and her sisters.  There is also a walking tour of Concord along with a listing of shops and restaurants. Lots of great content!

It’s a privilege to have my article included in Discover Concord. Be sure and visit their website where you can subscribe to the magazine.
