The Wareham Historical Society will proudly host author, Beth Luey, who will present a program about the life and homes of Louisa May Alcott. The program will take place at the Methodist Meeting House, 495 Main St., Wareham, MA at 7 p.m. Generations of readers feel a part of the March family, but the Alcott family, on whom the Marches are based, was much more complicated and interesting. Ms. Luey will talk about the houses where the stories took place and how the families came to live there.
Beth Luey retired as director of the Scholarly Publishing Program at Arizona State University in 2006 and moved to Fairhaven, MA. After working at the Adams Family Papers at the Massachusetts Historical Society, she began writing books about historic houses. Her books include; House Stories: The meanings of Home in a New England Town, At Home: Historic Houses of Eastern Massachusetts and At Home: Historic Houses of Central and Western Massachusetts.
Refreshments will be served after the program.
Admission: members-free, non-members: $2.00.
