Little Women exhibit at UCLA

My exhibit celebrating the 150th anniversary of the publication of Little Women is currently on display at UCLA’s Charles E. Young Research Library.

“Not a Bit Sensational but Simple and True”: Little Women features materials from UCLA Library Special Collections as well as the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library and my own personal collection (which I share with my daughter, Catherine.)

The exhibit explores Alcott’s life and works, highlighting her commitment to women’s suffrage and “reforms of all kinds.” Also featured are some of the many women writers and leaders who have been inspired by Little Women and its rebellious protagonist, including Geraldine Brooks, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Susan Sontag.
