Amherst, NY – The UB libraries will launch a special exhibit later this month featuring the works of Louisa May Alcott, author of the beloved children's book Little Women. But UB scholars tell us that Alcott was no little woman and her life was no children's book.
WBFO's Joyce Kryszak talked with UB humanities librarian Laura Taddeo and UB associate professor of English Stacy Hubbard about the exhibit and Alcott's surprising life.
Taddeo starts by telling how the exhibit will showcase the many layers of the prolific writer's work and life.
The exhibit is expected to open by the end of September. It will be housed on the second floor of the Lockwood Library on the UB north campus.
There will be a roundtabel discussion Tuesday at noon in room 306 of Clemens Hall on the UB north campus.
