Entertainment Weekly reports that Laura Dern has been tapped to voice author Louisa May Alcott in a new Little Women audiobook.
The audiobook hails from Audible.
Dern also stars as Marmee, the March family’s matriarch in Greta Gerwig’s film adaptation of the classic novel.
“Being part of Little Women has completely converted me into an Audible addict!” Laura Dern said in a statement. “I’ve fallen in love with audio — it’s a completely different acting experience. Audio is fantastic in its ability to let stories resonate through the voice alone. It’s so private and intimate, you share the humor, irreverence, and bravery of the writing with the listener in such a personal way.”
Audible’s Susan Jurevics added: “We’re thrilled to make Little Women, starring Laura Dern, available to Audible members. Our listeners are passionate about diving into love in its many forms — romantic, classic, and beyond — and this new Little Women recording encompasses them all. While the March sisters explore love in marriage and motherhood, one of their most enduring bonds is with each other.”
