Orchard House: Home of Little Women b>Orchard House: Home of Little Women Step inside the 350-year-old home in Concord, Massachusetts where Little Women was written and set in 1868. With a nurturing, talented family as owners and literary giants Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, and Nathaniel Hawthorne as neighbors, Orchard House uniquely inspired Louisa May Alcott to create a book that has never been out of print and has been translated into over 50 languages.

Orchard House: The Home of Little Women also reveals the powerful historical, literary, and very human elements of this home and the people who lived there. Hosted by Orchard House Executive Director Jan Turnquist, this film combines archival photographs, excerpts from the family's personal papers, and interviews with photographer Annie Leibovitz, biographer John Matteson, screenwriter Olivia Milch, and actors Maya Hawke, Dylan Baker, and Willa Fitzgerald to offer scholars and fans alike glimpses into the saga of historic preservation and cultural work at this treasured living history site.

I loved the energy and soul of this doc! Caught it after an airing of the new Little Women series. It was a perfect companion. So thrilled to have this place in my own backyard!

Virtual Visit to Home of Little Women
Review by Elizabeth on 02/08/22 review stating Virtual Visit to Home of Little Women
This is a tour and background of Louisa May Alcotts home in historic Concord. MA. Its like walking back in time, with authentic period furnishings, clothing, and personal belongings of this famous family. Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy come alive from the pages of this beloved novel! This gives more meaning to the scene of the Alcotts and their importance to young America.

Preserving Places of American Literature
Review by Kathryn A. on 02/08/22 review stating Preserving Places of American Literature
Thanks for offering this film about the home of one literary giant -- Louisa May Alcott! As a teenager my family travelled from our Midwest home to Boston Concord, MA and we actually walked into this house! Not everyone can make such a trip so its terrific to make it available on a DVD.
