Louisa May Alcott
A Living History Program

This American writer of children's books was raised in Boston. While serving as a nurse during the Civil War, Alcott wrote letters to her family that were later published as Hospital Sketches. Her most famous works - Little Women, a novel of her childhood, and its sequels, Little Men and Jo's Boys - are considered classics.

Professional storyteller, Patti Christensen, brings history alive with her portrayal of the talented and eccentric author, Louisa May Alcott. Both those who have loved Louisa's stories, as well as those who have yet to be introduced, will enjoy this one-woman show.

Patti did a wonderful job of transporting the audience back in time to hear the humorous and interesting life stories of Ms. Alcott. It was a thoroughly enjoyable program.

Congratulations for the beautiful program of Little Women you did. It was amazing and I noticed that the public was enjoying it a lot.

Far away, there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.
Louisa May Alcott, Author
