5/18/2018 - Screening of PBS Masterpiece Adaptation of Louisa May Alcott Classic Novel

The Southbury Public Library is screening the three parts of PBS Masterpiece’s adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s most famous novel as a part of the Adult Summer Series “Revisiting Our History at the Southbury Public Library.” This miniseries about the March sisters will be shown at 3pm in the Kingsley Room in three parts on the following dates: Monday, June 4, 2018; Monday, June 18, 2018; and Monday, July 2, 2018.

Interested patrons are invited to attend this 3 part special screening of the PBS Masterpiece adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel about the March sisters. On Monday, June 4, 2018 at 3pm in the Kingsley Room the library will show Part 1. In this episode, it’s Christmas 1861. The March sisters–Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy–prepare for a Christmas without presents or their father. On Monday, June 18, 2018 at 3pm in the Kingsley Room the library will show Part 2. In this episode, as Marmee waits by her husband’s sickbed, the March sisters must fend for themselves at home. On Monday, July 2, 2018 at 3pm in the Kingsley Room, we’ll show Part III. In this episode, a year has passed and there are new additions to the March family–but there is worry all around as Beth’s health and spirits flag.

The episodes being screened will be shown in the Kingsley meeting room surround sound theater, with infrared listening system available and closed captioning.
