Today marks acclaimed novelist Louisa May Alcott’s 184th birthday. Born in Germantown, Pennsylvania, Alcott was best known for “Little Women,” which was loosely based on Alcott’s own life. Since the books release, it has been adapted for film several times, in 1933, 1949, and most recently in 1994; the novel has also been adapted for television and stage.
Through the Rohrbach Library, students can access several resources relating to Alcott’s work. For example, via Britannica Original Sources, students can read three of Alcott’s works: “Little Women,” “Little Men,” and “Flower Fables, while Films OnDemand offers the 1949 film, “Little Women.” Alternatively, students can search EBSCOhost for Alcott’s works and as well as analyses of Alcott and her contribution to literature.
