Louisa May Alcott: The True Life of one of the "Little Women"
The series kicks on at the Bend Public Library with a program titled, “The History and Mystery of Sacagawea.” Presenter, Crystal McCage, Assistant Professor at COCC, says that Sacagawea, a member of the Lewis and Clark expedition, continues to capture our imagination because “the myth has eclipsed the reality.” The second presentation in the series is titled “Frida Kahlo: Mexican Artist – World Icon,” and will be presented at the Sisters Public Library by University of Oregon Research Associate Stephanie Wood. During her presentation, Wood will examine how and why Kahlo became a modern icon whose self-portraits are known around the world. The series concludes with a presentation titled “Louisa May Alcott: The True Life of one of the Little Women,” presented by COCC English Professor, Stacey Donohue. During her presentation, Donohue will explore the life of Alcott, and revisit Little Women in new ways.
