Our friends from Sisters Tea Room helped us host a tea party earlier this week as part of our celebration of the 150th anniversary of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women.
Guests learned about the history of tea and the specific customs of tea parties during the Civil War era.
And, naturally, there were delicious teas and fancies to sample.
By the way, we’re also throwing a tea party for kids at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 29, at our Lake Branch.
It’s open to all kids in kindergarten through fifth grade. They can sip tea and make fun hats too.
This program is free to attend. You can register online or call our Lake Branch at (440) 257-2512.
And these tea parties are just part of our September celebration of Little Women‘s sesquicentennial.
We’re also hosting a performance of Little Women by the Geauga Lyric Theater Guild at 2 p.m. this Saturday, Sept. 22, at our Main Branch. See the story of the March family performed live. The tale may be 150 years old but it still resonates today.
