Tonight, Kristin talks with John Matteson about his new book, The Annotated Little Women, where he brings his expertise on the Alcott family—as well as some photos of their home and belongings—to the beloved children’s classic. Tonight, Kristin and John discuss Louisa May Alcott, her relationship with her father, Bronson, and why we’re still so drawn to a book that is almost 150 years old.
