18 | TILLY'S CHRISTMAS BY LOUISA MAY ALCOTT
Globe Advent 18
Join Helen Schlesinger in the warmth and cosiness of the candlelit Sam Wanamaker Playhouse as she reads Tilly’s Christmas by Louisa May Alcott.
Best known for enchanting readers with her novel Little Women, American novelist Louisa May Alcott was also a writer of short stories and poetry, and her heart-warming Christmas tale, Tilly’s Christmas, teaches us of the value of being kind to others.
“This bird is my little neighbor, and I’ll love him and care for him” answered Tilly, breathing her warm breath over the benumbed bird, who looked up at her with confiding eyes, quick to feel and know a friend.
