I’m a little behind. January 4th totally snuck up on me (the entire month has been pretty sneaky!), but I still wanted to participate in this month’s prompt for A Classics Challenge because it involves finding things on the Interwebz.
This month’s topic: The Author
Level 1 (Because I’m really not very far…)
Who is the author? Louisa May Alcott
What does she look like?
When was Louisa May Alcott born? November 29, 1832
Where did she live? She was born in a town that is now in Pennsylvania. The family moved to Massachusetts when she was a toddler, and she wrote Little Women in Concord.
What does her handwriting look like? Below is her signature via Wikipedia.
What are some of the other novels they’ve written? Eight Cousins, Rose in Bloom, Little Men, Jo’s Boys
What is an interesting and random fact about their life? One of my favorite tidbits is that she didn’t believe she could write a book for girls and she hated really enjoy the task either. I have the Newbery Medal winning biography, Invincible Louisa, that I want to read again. (Children’s biographies are way more to the point, you know?)
