Alma Book Club will be discussing Louisa May Alcott’s title Little Women at our upcoming meeting! Won’t you join us?
Little Women was originally published in two volumes. The first, Little Women: Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy. The Story Of Their Lives. A Girl’s Book was written in 1868 and had an immediate fan following. The second title, Good Wives was written over just a few months in 1869. Louisa May Alcott found fame and fortune with this creative work.
The Alma Book Club is gearing up for another season of interesting reads! Monday, March 20th – 1:30 p.m. – Alma Public Library
A schedule of readings hasn’t yet been set, but if you’re interested in sitting in on a session – Save This Date, and bring a friend. It’s a great way to anticipate Spring!
To kick off the holiday shopping season years ago, department stores (especially those in bigger cities) trimmed their windows with mechanical dolls and animals to attract shoppers. It became an annual tradition for many families to travel downtown, and to go from store to store to see the creations. It was inexpensive entertainment for children. New York City is known even today for its fantastic holiday window creations.
This year the library dressed our windows with this tradition in mind. We hope you enjoy them as December comes to a close.
