Guest: Cheri Earl, PhD, Adjunct Professor of American Literature and Creative Writing, Brigham Young University The Little Women sisters, Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy, are coming back to the screen just in time for the book’s 150th anniversary. The story is about to be re-introduced on screen in a major way. Next month, PBS is airing an adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic nove. This is by no means the first screen adaptation of the Civil War era story. Since it was published in 1869, Little Women has resonated widely with audiences in its original form and in many adapted versions. BYU Special Collections has two original copies of the novel Little Women, as well as a series of novels with covers based on the various film adaptations.
