Some Alcott trivia from Schmoop:

Louisa May Alcott didn't really want to write a book for American girls. In fact, she claimed in her journal that she didn't even like girls, except her sisters. But once her publisher convinced her to try, she succeeded spectacularly and the public demanded sequels! 

Louisa May Alcott's father, Bronson Alcott, was a Transcendentalist philosopher and friend of Ralph Waldo Emerson. Bronson Alcott is best known for an unusual experiment in "utopian" communal living that he undertook at a farm called Fruitlands.

Bronson Alcott was also born on Nov. 29, in 1799.
