Linda Batlin, author and storyteller, portrays classic American author Louisa May Alcott. Alcott, best known for writing the children’s novel Little Women in 1868, came from an unconventional victorian family and led an independent and unusual life. She was not only a prolific writer of children’s books, but also of dark thrillers and serious adult novels. She served as a nurse in the Civil War and was active in the abolition movement as well as other social issues such as the women’s suffrage movement. Among her friends and neighbors in Concord, MA were Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson. All of these things, as well as her love and dedication to her family and her passion for writing, were factors which led her to write Little Women. Come and “meet” Louisa May Alcott and learn more about this fascinating woman and her life.
