Louisa May Alcott: 11/29/1832 to 03/06/1888

6 Mar
This is my grave at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. Visitors often leave flowers, pennies, pencils and rocks to let me know they came by.

Good morning and welcome to Women in History Month 6, 2014!

Big Day today. It’s the anniversary of the ending of my first iteration. Louisa May Alcott died this day in 1888. She was 55. We know she lives on, not just through me, but her work. She wrote more than 30 books and major articles in her lifetime, so this gem is quite appropriate:

 

“I want to do something splendid…

Something heroic or wonderful that won’t be forgotten after I’m dead…

I think I shall write books.”

Even though it’s the anniversary of a death, I’d love you to spend the day celebrating life.
