Announcing the Poet’s Corner Virtual Book Club selection: “Work: A Story of Experience” by Louisa May Alcott

I would like to begin a discussion of Work: A Story of Experience by Louisa May Alcott, the newest selection from Poet’s Corner Virtual Book Club.

Don’t remember how the book club works? Here’s the original post about it.

Yes, I know, the last time we tried this with Eight Cousins, I didn’t finish. I promise that this time, I will.

I have been listening to an audio book of Work from Librivox and have already found much fodder for discussion.

Plus I have essays from Sarah Elbert, a prominent Alcott scholar, and Joy Kasson, who wrote the introduction to the Penguin version, plus other commentary from biographers.

I hope that you will join in the read and discussion!

Leave a comment for this post if you plan on reading along, or, if you’ve already read it and want to join in the discussion.

This should be a good one!

    I read Work some time ago and made some brief comments on it then. As you post on the book, I’ll try to join in. Work is a great picture of the realities of work for women in Louisa’s time.
