Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, 150th Anniversary
Fifty years later, on the other side of the Atlantic, Louisa May Alcott agreed to write a “novel for girls” as part of a deal with an editor that would also help her father publish his own work. Louisa based her story on her family. She was Jo, of course. Her novel took only ten weeks to write and was an instant success.Our display featured copies of Little Women, books about Louisa, and DVDs. (MFV)
