- A biography, Invincible Louisa by Cornelia Meigs
- A Long Fatal Love Chase by Louisa. This was one of her “sensational novels.”
I watched the recent Masterpiece Theatre remake of Little Women and enjoyed it quite a bit – I think it aired last month. But I enjoyed watching several of the behind-the-scenes videos of the show. I didn’t know the Alcott home, Orchard House, was still preserved today with many of its originals furnishings, Louisa’s desk, and even May’s (Amy’s counterpart) sketchings on the walls. I learned, also, that one of May’s art students sculpted the sitting Lincoln Memorial.
I also listened to several of the podcasts Tarissa linked to for us.
It was fun to spend so much time reading and thinking about Alcott this month. I already have at least one book planned for next year’s challenge.
Thank you for hosting, Tarissa! It was fun!
