This year we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the publication of one of the most beloved books of all time — Little Women. The character of Jo March, the heroine of Louisa May Alcott's Little Women, was loosely based on Alcott's own life, growing up with three sisters, a strong mother, and a revered, but largely absent father.

Thanks to the fame of Little Women, today's readers associate Alcott mostly with Concord. In fact, before the author reluctantly agreed to pen Little Women, her contemporary readers associated her prolific writing with Boston. Both before and after the 1868 publication of Little Women, Alcott lived for long periods in Boston and identified strongly with the city’s ethos.

Co-sponsored by the Boston Literary District, this tour will focus on Alcott and her literary contemporaries, their connections with each other, and their Boston world.

“Good books, like good friends, are few and chosen; the more select, the more enjoyable.” - Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888)
