Who is...Louisa May Alcott?

Author of: thrillers, short stories, novels, and children's books, most notably Little Women, Little Men, and Jo's Boys

Important because: as a feminist and abolitionist, she was the first woman to register to vote in Concord, MA. However, her fame mostly stems from the fame of her works.

Important to me because: she was another author whom I loved and read growing up. What I remember most, however, is going from reading the three big ones (listed above) to her novel A Long Fatal Love Chase. It is the night to Little Women's day and my first "romance novel" and was very shocking (to me) at the time...ah, good times. Her books make for some fun reading!
