Happy Birthday Louisa May Alcott!

Today marks the birthday of one of my favorite authors, Louisa May Alcott. She is famous for introducing the world to the beloved March sisters: Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy. Alcott’s focus on sisterhood, women’s issues and other themes, and her exploration of ordinary American life during the Civil War revolutionized the literary world. The courage and grace with which the sisters face life’s ups and downs continues to inspire readers today. The opening story arch of Little Women is one of my personal favorites. It is so appropriate for this time of year as it centers around how the March women celebrate Christmas without their father who is fighting in the Civil War. I hope you appreciate Alcott’s work as much as I do!
