Fiction: Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Louisa May Alcott worked in the mid-1800s to support her family and their financial difficulties, while she was just a young girl. She wrote one of the most famous novels in American history, Little Women. This semi-autobiographical classic chronicles the joys and sorrows of the four March sisters as they grow into young ladies in nineteenth-century New England. With at least six movie adaptations, readers can enjoy watching it after they read it.
