The Other Alcott Book Event

01/20/2018 - 2:00pm

Elise Hooper's debut novel, The Other Alcott, conjures the fascinating, untold story of May Alcott, Louisa's youngest sister and an artist in her own right. Stylish, outgoing, creative, May Alcott grows up longing to experience the wide world beyond Concord, MA. While her sister Louisa crafts stories, May herself is a talented and dedicated artist, taking lessons in Boston, turning down a marriage proposal from a well-off suitor, and facing scorn for entering what is very much a man's profession.

Although a New Englander by birth (and at heart), Elise Hooper lives with her husband and two young daughters in Seattle, where she teaches history and literature.
