About the author(s): Louisa May Alcott was born in 29 November 1832
Louisa May Alcott was born in Germantown, Pennsylvania on November 29, 1832. She and her three sisters, Anna, Elizabeth, and May, were educated by their father, philosopher/ teacher Bronson Alcott, and raised on the practical Christianity of their mother, Abigail May.Louisa spent her childhood in Boston and in Concord, Massachusetts, where her days were enlightened by visits to Ralph Waldo Emerson’s library, excursions into nature with Henry David Thoreau, and theatricals in the barn at Hillside (now Hawthorne’s Wayside).Like her character, Jo March in Little Women, young Louisa was a tomboy. No boy could be my friend till I had beaten him in a race, she claimed, and no girl if she refused to climb trees, leap fences ...For Louisa, writing was an early passion. She had a rich imagination and often her stories became melodramas that she and her sisters would act out for friends. Louisa preferred to play the lurid parts in these plays --the villains, ghosts, bandits, and disdainful queens.At age 15, troubled by the poverty that plagued her family, she vowed: I will do something by and by. Don’t care what, teach, sew, act, write, anything to help the family; and I’ll be rich and famous and happy before I die, see if I won’t!([Source][1]) [1]: http://www.louisamayalcott.org/
