The Mary Baker Eddy Library hosts a book discussion on Marmee & Louisa: The Untold Story of Louisa May Alcott and Her Mother in anticipation of its program with author Eve LaPlante on Thursday evening, March 7, at 5:30 PM.

Join us and find out why National Public Radio called it “One of the top ten books of 2012.”

LaPlante delves into Louisa May Alcott's family history and its intersection with the great moral, spiritual, and political questions of the day in revealing the importance of Louisa's maternal side, the May family, on Louisa's abilities and ambition as an author.
