This romantic cliffhanger about a woman pursued by her ex-lover, a relentless stalker, seems sprung from today's headlines. Yet Alcott (1832-1888) wrote it more than a century and a quarter ago, in 1866 (two years before the appearance of Little Women), only to see it rejected it as ``too sensational'' by the magazine that had requested it. The novel has remained unpublished until now.
Our Friday STEAM program all about seeds and plants
Our Friday, May 30, STEAM program will introduce the science of botany! Learning about seeds and plants is a great way to get ready for summer. It also sparks ideas for healthy eating. In this program children will learn about the parts of a seed, germination, and plant structure. They will also plant their own seeds and take home a chart in order to record its growth.
