Kent Bicknell on Louisa May Alcott

April 23 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

Sponsored by The Grolier Club

Bibliophile and historian Kent Bicknell will explore his Alcott Family Collection, winner of a recent collecting prize from the New England-based Ticknor Society. Among the highlights will be a fascinating 1876 Russian translation of Little Women; an account of Bronson Alcott’s famed Temple School in Boston; Louisa May Alcott’s annotated copy of A Memoir of Ralph Waldo Emerson; and four unpublished letters from the artist, May Alcott Nieriker, along with images of her paintings.

Kent will also share his ongoing work with the Hawthorne Family Library Project. Professor B. Bernard Cohen (1923-1999) bequeathed to Kent several hundred files he had created through decades of research on the books owned or accessed by members of the Hawthorne family. Kent is digitizing this information with the goal of making it accessible to all.

This is a virtual event. The Zoom link will be sent to the email with which you registered for the event two days, two hours, and 10 minutes prior to the event.
