Louisa May Alcott: Through Her Eyes

Description: 

On Wednesday, June 29, starting 5:45, Brownell Library invites everyone for Louisa May Alcott-style festivity, Louisa May Alcott:  Through Her Eyes.  For those who come even earlier, there is croquet on the lawn and games that readers recall from the Camp Laurence chapter of Little Women.  For instance, in “Rigmarole” “One person begins a story, any nonsense [s/he] likes, and tells as long a s/he pleases, only taking care to stop short at some exciting point, when the next takes it up and does the same.” 

The pot-luck supper under the tent on the front lawn features 19th century fare—prizes for the most authentic dishes—serenaded by renowned Vermont fiddler Pete Sutherland who plays traditional melodies familiar to Alcott.

Summoned to the parlor, the Main Reading Room, at 7:00 p.m., there is a living-history performance by Marianne Donnelly, Louisa May Alcott:  Beyond Little Women.

Donnelly’sLouisa May Alcott:  Beyond Little Women is a carefully researched portrayal of writer and activist Louisa May Alcott.  Emphasizing her suffragist and abolitionist involvement, Civil War nursing experience and unique childhood, Louisa is accurately and passionately brought to life.  Following the 40-45 minute performance, the audience may engage Alcott with questions.

All programs are free and open to the public. For more information about this and other events, contact the Brownell Library via email, phone 802-878-6955 or visit the library's website.

Louisa May Alcott:  The Woman Behind Little Women, a documentary film co-produced by Nancy Porter Productions, Inc. and Thirteen/WNET New York’s American Masters, and a biography of the same name written by Harriet Reisen.  Louisa May Alcott programs in libraries are sponsored by the American Library Association Public Programs Office with the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities. 

Vermont Public Television and Vermont Humanities Council are in concert with Brownell Library.  Brownell Library is also grateful for the support of Friends of Brownell Library and The Brownell Library Foundation.

“A Walk in the Woods” Managing Wildlife Habitat
Body: 

Few things are more satisfying for landowners than seeing deer, wild turkeys and other wildlife on their property. And few things are more important to deer and other wildlife than engaged landowners. About 80 percent of Vermont’s forested habitat is privately owned, and as more land is lost to development each year, the importance of the remaining habitat has steadily grown. With the help of organizations like the Vermont Woodlands Association, the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department hosts workshops that educate landowners on the benefits of actively managing wildlife habitat.

Maquam Wildlife Management Area
Body: 

Nestled in the northwestern corner of Vermont, the 872-acre Maquam Wildlife Management Area is nearly split in half by route 36. The southern half, or Lampman portion, is mostly woodlands while the northern half, or Maquam Bay side, borders Lake Champlain. The Maquam WMA and surrounding land not only has a rich history, it also has fertile soils, productive wetlands and a well managed forest that support a rich diversity of habitats and wildlife. The wetland portion is great for spotting waterfowl, wading birds and aquatic mammals like beaver, muskrat and river otters. The early successional habitat is great for grouse and woodcock. Adjacent farmland and hardwoods attract turkey, deer and a host of other popular wildlife species.
