American Masters: “Louisa May Alcott: The Woman Behind Little Women” With Filmmakers Nancy Porter and Harriet Reisen

Join us at 1pm or 7pm for a free screening of the American Masters film Louisa May Alcott: The Woman Behind Little Women which combines documentary and dramatic re-enactments focusing on the trailblazing author of The Great American Read novel Little Women. Alcott has a reputation as a morally upstanding New England writer, raised among reformers, iconoclasts, and Transcendentalists. The film also explores her democratic ideals and progressive values about women, and her secret career as author A.M. Barnard, writing pulp-fiction for years. Director Nancy Porter and Producer Harriet Reisen will be available for a talkback following both screenings. Learn more about the film and filmmakers on the American Masters site. The studio will be open all day – come by for fun giveaways and to vote for your favorite novel in The Great American Read!
