“Little Women” at 150
September marks the 150th anniversary of the publication of the beloved classic novel Little Women. Special Collections is celebrating with a small exhibit drawn from our extensive collection of works by Louisa May Alcott. “Little Women at 150″ features the first editions of parts one and two of the novel, early European reprints and translations, and an array of modern adaptations and retellings of the story (Little Women and Vampires, anyone?). Also on display is Max Steiner’s original manuscript score for the 1933 film adaptation starring Katharine Hepburn.
“Little Women at 150″ will be on display in Special Collections’ reference room throughout the month of September.
