Louisa May Alcott Giveaway

I have such a connection to Louisa May Alcott.  Little Women was the first adult book my father ever bought me (when I was in first grade).   I've seen the play, Little Women.  My mother bought me a bookmark, and a purse made from the book cover from Little Women.  And, I've seen the wonderful PBS story about Louisa May Alcott.

Now, you have the chance to win the book, Louisa May Alcott: The Woman Behind Little Women by Harriet Reisen, and the DVD of the PBS production.  Picador is offering them to one lucky winner from my blog.  Here is the postcard I received about the package.





So, if you would like to win this package, email me at lholstine@yahoo.com. Your subject line should read "Win Louisa May Alcott." Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants only in the U.S., please.


I know there will be no one at Picador until Monday, so this contest will end Monday, Nov. 29th at 5 a.m. MT. The winner will be selected by random number generator. I'll notify the winner, and the book will be sent to you by Picador.

I am more a fan of Little Men and Jo's Boys, but regardless of preference, Alcott's books are great for young readers.

I also loved Eight Cousins, Naomi. This DVD is fascinating for anyone who liked Alcott's books.

I am a huge Alcott fan!I have such fond memories reading her books with my sister when I was small. I still read Little Women from time to time.
