Noble Discontent: Louisa May Alcott

Grant Park Pavillion, Galena IL
May 19, 2024

In celebration of the tenth annual Galena LitFest, the Galena Public Library, is thrilled to announce the return of Debra Miller, who will portray Louisa May Alcott in the Grant Park Pavilion on Sunday, May 19 at 11 am. Tickets include a box lunch provided by Galena Bakehouse.
Poet and author, abolitionist and nurse, patriot and suffragist; Louisa May Alcott was so much more than the author of Little Women. In this 45 minute performance, the audience meets with this prolific American author at the height of her health and success. We learn of the hopes, the heartbreaks, and the experiences of Louisa May Alcott's life from which she drew inspiration for her novels, short stories, and poems. Through excerpts from her letters and journals and published works, Louisa May Alcott speaks to you in her own words; of her childhood, her experiences as a Civil War nurse, her struggles to support her family, and the equal rights of all.
A boxed lunch, curated by Galena Bakehouse will be served before the performance. See menu below.
