Louisa May Alcott was a second-generation reformer in her family; she was
schooled in agitation for women’s rights and the abolition of slavery, as
well as other reforms including religion, diet, medicine, and labor, by
the diligent efforts of her parents and their famed circle of friendsâ€"and
perhaps even more by a larger, less public network surrounding this
circle. The Louisa May Alcott Society welcomes papers addressing what
Freda Baum has termed “the scarlet strand of reform” in Alcott’s work and
life, and in the larger circles in which she learned to value the
reformist spirit. Send abstracts by 24 January 2008 to: Mary Shelden,
