"It's amazing how lovely common things become, if one only knows how to look at them." (from "Marjorie's Three Gifts," 1877)
During the next thirty-six minutes I will give you an overview of the recent Summer Conversational Series, "'Finding Beauty in the Humblest Things' -- Louisa May Alcott's Literary Vision" which took place July 10-14 at Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House. You'll get to hear from many of the speakers and hear a summary of their presentations. Here on the show notes I have links to my notes so that you can get all the details.
These here are just abbreviated show notes. Visit the blog post while you listen for the complete text and photos.
Part two of Dr. Matteson’s presentation was an encore of the presentation he made last May at the Concord Inn which you can read about in my blog post, “Finding the ‘prince of patients’—John Matteson discovers the whereabouts of John Suhre from Hospital Sketches”
