Paperback release of The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott by Kelly O’Connor McNees + Author Book Signing in Georgia

The paperback release of The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott by Kelly O’Connor McNees will be released on May 3, 2011!  Isn't this cover stunning?!  I just love that dress!!

SYNOPSIS
A richly imagined, remarkably written story of the woman who created Little Women- and how love changed her in ways she never expected.

Deftly mixing fact and fiction, Kelly O'Connor McNees returns to the summer of 1855, when vivacious Louisa May Alcott is twenty-two and bursting to free herself from family and societal constraints and do what she loves most. Stuck in small-town New Hampshire, she meets Joseph Singer, and as she opens her heart, Louisa finds herself torn between a love that takes her by surprise and her dream of independence as a writer in Boston. The choice she must make comes with a steep price that she will pay for the rest of her life.

And to all my fellow Georgia readers, author Kelly O'Connor McNees will be coming to Woodstock, GA for a book signing!  The details are below:

Date: May 7th
Time: 1:00 pm
Bookstore: Foxtale Book Shoppe
Location: 105 E. Main Street #138
Woodstock, GA 30188

I am definitely going to try and make it since it's not too far from where I live and hope to meet fellow bibliophiles there!

  5. I have heard such nice things about this book. I wished we lived closer to Woodstock. I'll have to check her tour schedule to see if she will be any closer.

  6. She will be in Asheville, NC in June. That is just 45 minutes from us. I'll get to visit my daughter and go to Ms. McNees' book signing.
