Louisa May Alcott Society Celebrating Louisa May Alcott’s 188th Birthday

The event will feature talks from two distinguished Alcott scholars:
Daniel Shealy, “‘Not wise to keep for curious eyes to read’: The Value of Documentary and Textual Editing in Alcott Studies”

Kristina West, “‘I ain’t going to dress up for nothing’: Performativity, Cross-Dressing, and Queerness in Louisa May Alcott’s Works for Children”
There will also be some lively discussion and some social connecting and reconnecting.
