November 29 Birthday: THE LIFE OF LOUISA MAY ALCOTT
Louisa May Alcott
November 29, 182 – March 6, 1888
When Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women was published in 1868 it
was an instant success. Louisa drew on her experiences in writing the
novel, but there’s a lot more to her rags-to-riches story. Louisa came
from a family that was poor but freethinking, and she started teaching
when she was only seventeen years old. But writing was her passion. This
informative biography captures the life of a compassionate woman who
left an indelible mark on literature for all ages.
