Masterpiece: Little Women Special Pre-broadcast Screening with AETN
Friday, April 13th 12:00p.m.

Celebrate National Library Week with a special pre-broadcast screening of the upcoming PBS Masterpiece drama, Little Women. Join us as we view part one of the three-part television adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's coming-of-age classic, Little Women, brought to us by our media partner AETN. Loved by generations of women worldwide, Little Women is a truly universal coming of age story, as relevant and engaging today as it was on its original publication in 1868.

The drama will be introduced by local historian and UAFS faculty member Tom Wing, who will give a short discussion of the time period to set the mood for the program. Set against the backdrop of the Civil War, the story follows sisters Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March on their journey from childhood to adulthood. With the help of their mother, Marmee, and while their father is away at war, the girls navigate what it means to be a young woman: from sibling rivalry and first love, to loss and marriage. Tom Wing is an Assistant Professor of History at UAFS and Director of the university-owned Drennen-Scott Historic Site. His areas of expertise include, among other things, 19th century American and Civil War History.

Set in Concord, Massachusetts, Alcott's semi-autobiographical story became an instant bestseller when it was published and remains one of the most widely read novels of all time. A recent Harris poll listing it as one of America's ten favorite books confirms its enduring place in the cultural landscape. Feel free to bring your lunch or pick something up at Dewey's Café to enjoy during the screening. The library will provide drinks and dessert.
