On Sunday, December 15th from 11:00 am - 12:30 pm, Boston By Foot will conduct its Louisa May Alcott's Boston walking tour as a companion piece with the new LITTLE WOMEN theatrical release. Thanks to the fame of Little Women, today's readers associate Louisa May Alcott mostly with Concord. In fact, before the author reluctantly agreed to pen Little Women, her contemporary readers associated her prolific writing with Boston. Both before and after the 1868 publication of Little Women, Alcott lived for long periods in Boston and identified strongly with the city’s ethos.
