About the Author
Jenne Bergstrom was raised by two summer camp directors but spent all her time reading instead of being outdoors. She went to a tiny one-room schoolhouse in a charming mountain town, but always dreamed of living in a glamorous big city. Nowadays, she lives in a tiny house in San Diego, and runs a library in another charming mountain town. She is the cofounder of the literary culinary blog 36eggs.com, and her favorite Little Women character is Aunt March.
Miko Osada is a librarian for kids and teens, in a suburb just east of San Diego. She lives with her wife and three cats, Figgy, Piggy, and Squeazle. Miko is the cocreator of 36eggs.com, a blog about re-creating fictitious dishes. Little Women was one of her favorite stories growing up, and she owns four copies of the book: two in Japanese (her first language) and two in English. Miko is a proud member of Slytherin House, and the March sister she relates to most is Amy.
