Louisa May Alcott's Little Women — one of the most beloved books of all time — was published more than 150 years ago. The character of Jo March, the book’s heroine, was loosely based on Alcott's own life, growing in 19th century New England. Thanks to the fame of Little Women, today's readers associate Alcott with Concord. In fact, Alcott lived for long periods in Boston. Most readers of the time associated her with the city’s vibrant literary scene. On this tour, you will see Alcott’s Boston homes, walk the streets and hear stories that inspired this beloved author.
