Louisa May Alcott: The Woman Behind Little Women

When I was in elementary school, I would read Little Women once a year. I also read nearly every other book Louisa May Alcott wrote, though none since I was about 12. I think Alcott is one of those immensely important writers for young girls, especially those who want to be writers themselves.

A new film Louisa May Alcott, the Woman Behind Little Women airs on PBS on December 28 at 9 p.m. It is based on Harriet Reisen's book of the same name, which came out in October. It looks promising, so I'm planning to check it out.

Several clips are out now to promote the film, including the mildly absurd Five Things You Don't Know About Louisa May Alcott, below.
