Louisa May Alcott: Home

Resources by and about the author and her times.

About This Guide - New

The Marquette Libraries offered this resource guide in support of a program hosted in the Fall of 2011 entitled, "Louisa May Alcott: The Woman Behind Little Women." The five-event series, co-sponsored by the Milwaukee Public Library, ran from September 19th through November 29th.

The program was made possible by a grant from the American Library Association with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Feel free to use the resources in this guide with the understanding that it is no longer being updated.
