In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, BBHS will present a look back at the role of beloved author Louis May Alcott as a champion of suffrage. Louisa May Alcott Wants You to Vote will feature Lorraine Tosiello, resident of Bradley Beach and physician at VNAHG Community Health Center of Asbury Park, and Peggy Dellinger, President of the League of Women Voters’ Southern Monmouth Chapter, who will provide facts vs fiction about the November 3rd election. Lorraine is an independent scholar and member of the Louisa May Alcott Society. She read Little Women in the first grade and has spent her life in emulation of the March family and their creator. Like Jo, she is easily riled up and seeks to slay imaginary dragons. Her book, Only Gossip Prospers: A Novel of Louisa May Alcott in New York was published in 2019 by Pink Umbrella Books.
