Little Women Bookclub
Explore an old classic with the Amherst Historical Society! Join us monthly for a casual bookclub and leading up to and beyond the release of the new movie, Little Women (2019). Snack on refreshments while revisiting the world of Louisa May Alcott’s enduring exploration of coming-of-age, sisterhood, and purpose in a family apart and an era of war. Participants are encouraged to come prepared to discuss a favorite or least favorite scene and character. Readers of all ages and experiences are welcome and encouraged to come! Whether the stories of Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March are new to you or Little Women is a thumbed-through classic in your home, you are sure to find something new.
Our third Little Women Bookclub will be held on Thursday, January 23rd, from 5-6:30pm. The third meeting will focus on the movie, which is scheduled for release on December 25.
