Laura Dern narrates 'Little Women' audiobook
NEW YORK, NY – Laura Dern likes the spoken word so much she even enjoys callbacks to re-record lines for her movies. Dern's memories of “Little Women” date back to around age 13, when she and her grandmother would read it aloud together and when Dern read the novel by herself. Like the March sisters, she was raised mostly by women; her parents, the actors Bruce Dern and Diane Ladd, divorced when she was little and she spent much of her time with her mother and grandmother. Filming the movie, and reading the audiobook, reminded her of her deep attachment to the fictional family, especially to Marmee. Her immersion in “Little Women” has her thinking about her family — one of her children read “Little Women” while Dern was working on the film last year — and how to include them in future audiobooks.
