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.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
