Eve LaPlante, award-winning author and cousin of Louisa May Alcott, draws from newly discovered papers in the family attic to tell the story of Louisa's actual "Marmee," Abigail May Alcott. Abigail, the intellectual and emotional center of her daughter's world, pushed Louisa to excel and to pursue her dreams in a male-dominated world. This lecture is sold out.
