Love and Louisa

Louisa May Alcott is well-known for her novel Little Women, and the romance and heartbreak it entails. Less is known about her own romances (or lack thereof?), something Kelly O'Connor McNees explores in her latest novel, The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott. McNees will be reading this Thursday at Barnes & Noble (1441 West Webster Ave), 7:30pm.
