Titled Louisa May Alcott Ou la véritable histoire de Josephine March, this is the first official biography of Louisa in French.
Charline Bourdin was born in Rouen, France. She studied literature before becoming a secretary in a high school. Her favorite authors are especially Anglo-Saxon: Lewis Carroll, Jane Austen, Lucy Maud Montgomery, and of course, Louisa May Alcott whom she discovered when she was nineteen. Charline is very interested also in the life of younger sister May Alcott Nieriker; She currently resides in Meudon where May lived.
Charline was kind enough to send me a copy of the book for my library plus one I requested for Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House. Last Thursday I presented the book to Lis Adams, Education Coordinator at Orchard House.
I encourage you to visit Charline’s excellent blog; Google will translate the French into English. In her latest post, she put up a beautiful set of photos of Grez Sur Loing where May spent a summer in 1877. In such a picturesque place, one can certainly imagine gracious and statuesque May, armed with her enthusiasm and sketching pad and pencils producing many wonderful sketches and perhaps a painting or two.
Louisa’s legacy continues to grow and spread!
