Kelly O'Connor McNees visits Google's Ann Arbor office to present his book "The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott". This event took place on April 12, 2010, as part of the Authors@Google series. Millions of readers across generations have laughed and cried with the March sisters—Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy—of Louisa May Alcotts classic novel, Little Women. And there has never been a more beloved heroine in the history of American letters than Jo March, Louisas alter ego and an iconic figure of independent spirit and big dreams. But as Louisa knew all too well, big dreams often come at a cost. In her debut novel, The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott, Kelly OConnor McNees deftly mixes fact and fiction as she imagines a summer lost to history, carefully purged from Louisas letters and journals, a summer that would change the course of Louisas writing career—and inspire the story of love and heartbreak between Jo and Teddy Laurie Laurence, Jos devoted neighbor and kindred spirit.

Katadreuffe was seen leaving Dreverhaven's office on the afternoon of the murder. He is arrested and taken to police headquarters, where he reflects back on the story of his long relationship with Dreverhaven. Director: Mike van Diem 1997
