Louisa May Alcott was one of the most successful and bestselling authors of her day, earning more than any of her male contemporaries. Her classic Little Women has been a mainstay of American literature since its release nearly 150 years ago, as Jo March and her calm, beloved “Marmee” have shaped and inspired generations of young women. Biographers have consistently attributed Louisa’s uncommon success to her father, Bronson Alcott, assuming that this outspoken idealist was the source of his daughter’s progressive thinking and remarkable independence.
But in this riveting dual biography, award-winning biographer Eve LaPlante explodes these myths, drawing from a trove of surprising new documents to show that it was Louisa’s actual “Marmee,” Abigail May Alcott, who formed the intellectual and emotional center of her world. Abigail, whose difficult life both inspired and served as a warning to her devoted daughters, pushed Louisa to excel at writing and to chase her unconventional dreams in a male-dominated world.
In this groundbreaking work, LaPlante paints an exquisitely moving and utterly convincing portrait of a woman decades ahead of her time, and the fiercely independent daughter whose life was deeply entwined with her mother’s dreams of freedom. This gorgeously written story of two extraordinary women is guaranteed to transform our view of one of America’s most beloved authors.
Eve LaPlante is the author of Seized, American Jezebel, and Salem Witch Judge, the winner of the 2008 Massachusetts Book Award for Nonfiction. She is also the editor of a collection of Abigail May Alcott's private papers. She lives with her family in New England.

Going to focus on a strict biblical topic today that came up as a question posed to me. It's a common belief by most Christians and many people who read the bible or whom are familar with the Creation account that the first two people God created were Adam and Eve. That then opens up generally a number of other questions ranging from where did the other races come from to where did Cain find his wife in the 4th chapter of Genesis. I believe if we actually read and rightly divide the Creation Story in the book of Genesis,utilizing some Hebrew and common sense and discernment we'll see that there were other people created by God and on earth in this age before Adam and Eve. So hopefully I'll be able to bring that out for you and maybe erase some confusion even though it may be radically different from what you've been taught or lead to believe before. That's today at 4:30 Eastern time and archived afterward

My talk with Eve Carnell and Steph Bradley about change and transformation. Eve and Steph talk about their walk across England to help ‘pollinate change’ from community to community, through inspiration and skill-sharing, as a walking university We discuss the joy of sharing, caring, and the urgency that we come together as humanity to change our current destructive trajectory to one of harmony and growth. We talk about self empowerment, and the possibility of great happiness and peace individually and globally, and our massive responsibility to create a better future, and a habitable planet for the people to come.
We talk about the process of frustration and despair and the feeling there is nothing we can do, and Eve and Steph remind us that there is a great deal that we can do to bring about change, and that in fact we manifest and create the future right now, and that it is up to us to do that.
Karen Wolfe Churgin walked her dogs on April 18, 1990, on her remote wooded property on Chebacco Road. The veterinarian spotted a white sphere obstructing a drainage ditch. When she reached to dislodge it, she reeled back in horror. She immediately called the police. “I saw something in the woods that looked like a punched-in volleyball,” Karen told the Beverly Times on April 25, 1990. “I looked closer and it was a human skull. It had suture-like zigzagged lines. Those are unique to human skulls.” Officer Hatfeld was the first to respond, and the initial conclusion determined the discovery was, indeed, a human skull. Hamilton Police Chief Walter Cullen arrived at the scene next and photographed the find. The Massachusetts State Police Crime Prevention and Control Unit, CPAC, dispatched Cpl. Dennis Marks to take charge of the crime scene. Local police sent the skull and a nearby black boot to Hunt Memorial Hospital to examine, but nothing else surfaced in the initial cursory search of the surrounding area. Notices went out to departments to assist the resident force, and names poured in to compare the cranium to known missing persons. Joan Webster’s name appeared on the list, but the resting spot was more than thirty miles from the long-speculated crime scene at Pier 7 in Boston. “Of course, it’s being checked out, but the location doesn’t seem to correlate. Circumstances pointed to her being taken out in a boat and dumped at sea. MOMMY'S A MOLE-Unraveling The Joan Webster Murder and Other Secrets in a CIA Family-Eve Carson
