Description:
 Elise Hooper reads from her latest work, "The Other Alcott."

Eclipsed by her sisterís literary triumph in 1868, May Alcott, the youngest of the Alcott sisters, sets out to pursue her own career as a painter. Mayís quest for her own identity and success takes her from Boston to Rome, London, and Paris and eventually puts her on a collision course with her famous older sister, Louisa.

2018 marks the 150th anniversary of the publication of "Little Women."

Although a New Englander by birth (and at heart), Elise Hooper lives with her husband and two young daughters in Seattle, where she teaches history and literature.
