From Fruitlands to Orchard House and Beyond:
The Life and Times of Louisa May Alcott
Wednesday, April 17, 10:45 AM

Although Louisa May Alcott is known primarily as the author of Little Women and its sequels, she was a multi-faceted woman.  An activist with an independent spirit, she served as a Civil War nurse and reformer in the suffrage movement.  In a show based on Alcott’s novels, letters, and journals, Rose Stephenson brings to life this fascinating woman and the times in which she lived.  Rose is also known for her character portrayals as Susan B. Anthony, Olympia Brown, and Clara Barton.  She currently teaches in the Liberal Studies Department at the UW-Extension.  Sign up for this free program by calling 835-5801.
