We are very excited to announce that we are hosting a giveaway of Louisa May Alcott: The Woman Behind Little Women by Harriet Riesen.We are also excited to announce that next week, we will have a guest post from the author, and we will announce the winner of this contest on the day of the guest post.
I remember reading the Little Women books when I was a teenager and loving the story of the March family and this is a good chance to find out more about the author behind this beloved series.
The lucky winner of this contest will win a copy of the book directly from the publisher.
In a fresh, modern take on the remarkable Louisa May Alcott, Harriet Reisen’s vivid biography explores the author’s life in the context of her works, many of which are to some extent autobiographical. Although Alcott secretly wrote pulp fiction, harbored radical abolitionist views, and served as a Civil War nurse, her novels went on to sell more copies than those of Herman Melville and Henry James. Stories and details culled from Alcott’s journals, together with revealing letters to family, friends, and publishers, plus recollections of her famous contemporaries provide the basis for this lively account of the author’s classic rags-to-riches tale. In Louisa May Alcott, the extraordinary woman behind the beloved American classic Little Women is revealed as never before.
