GCHSS Soirée 2024: Little Women

Generations of readers have fallen in love with the March sisters of Louisa May Alcott’s most popular novel ‘Little Women’. The well-loved characters, talented tomboy Jo, tragically frail Beth, beautiful Meg, and romantic, spoiled Amy are united in their devotion to each other and their struggles to survive in New England during the Civil War. ‘Little Women’ brought Alcott lasting fame and fortune, and far from being the “girl’s book” her publisher requested, it explores such timeless themes as love and death, war and peace, the conflict between personal ambition and family responsibilities, and the clash of cultures between Europe and America.
