When your favorite Special Collections authors go fictional

Did you know that the literary author collections contain novelizations of the lives of Louisa May Alcott, Robert Burns, Herman Melville, Walt Whitman, and William Wordsworth? The earliest examples go back to the 1920s! To find them, simply use the subject search feature on the library catalog with the author’s name (last name, first name) and the word “fiction.”

Here are some recently-acquired examples:
