Writer Geraldine Brooks on Little Women at 150

Writer Geraldine Brooks on Little Women at 150
Author Geraldine Brooks examines the enduring appeal of Louisa May Alcott's beloved novel and its roots in the author's life. Brooks, who drew on the Civil War-era experiences of the family's head, Bronson Alcott, in her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel March, explores how Alcott's radical parents and their progressive intellectual milieu shaped the woman, and the writer, she became.
