eBook available: The Mystery of Suicide Place

The Mystery of Suicide Place (cover)Our latest Distributed Proofreaders project to be published at Project Gutenberg is another Mrs. Alex. McVeigh Miller melodrama: The Mystery of Suicide Place, first serialized in the Fireside Companion between July 27, 1895 to October 12, 1895 under the longer title of “Fly-Away Floy, the Saucy Little Darling; or, the Mystery of Suicide Place.”

Like most of Mrs. Miller’s novels, the core of the story is a romance, in this case between a cheerful, independently-minded orphan named Floy and a wealthy young man named St. George Beresford. Also like most of Mrs. Miller’s novels, the romance is complicated by a number of factors, in this case including class differences, murderously jealous rivals, and Suicide Place, Floy’s childhood home, where a resident is driven to suicide once every decade. This last element, which provides a significant undertone of supernatural horror to the novel, makes this one of its author’s best works for reading during the Halloween season!

The entire book can be freely read online or downloaded in popular eBook formats through Project Gutenberg.

New Exhibit — “Scraps for Keeps”: Scrapbooks and Photo Albums from Distinctive Collections

Exhibit sign featuring a decorative scrapbook cover with the title.

Our latest exhibit, “Scraps for Keeps”: Scrapbooks and Photo Albums from Distinctive Collections, is now on display on the 1st floor of Falvey Library. Scrapbooks have been a popular way of saving and organizing information and memories since the 19th century. This exhibit presents a selection of some of the many types of scrapbooks and photo albums from Falvey’s Distinctive Collections. There are seven sections organized around different themes: Making of a Scrapbook, Mark Twain’s Patented Scrap Book System, Cultural Memory, Family & Friends, Travel & Tourism, On the Job, and School Days.

Photo of an upright exhibit case with two shelves filled with materials.

This exhibit was curated by me, Laura Bang (Distinctive Collections Librarian). Scrapbooks and photo albums are some of my favorite types of materials in our collections because they tell the personal stories of ordinary people. I love to page through what people took the time to save in albums and see what traces of their lives remain in what they left behind.

To hear more about my love for scrapbooks, join me for a curator’s chat on Wednesday, October 2 at 11:00am in Speakers’ Corner.

The exhibit will be on view through February 2020, and a digital version is forthcoming as well.

eBook available: The Red Cross Girls on the French Firing Line

The second Red Cross Girls adventure (following The Red Cross Girls in the British Trenches) is now available on Project Gutenberg. In The Red Cross Girls on the French Firing Line, the girls’ adventures in France continue, with the narrative giving much of its attention to Eugenia, the eldest of the group, who was more of a background character in the previous volume. As in the previous volume, the book develops the characters while offering occasional action sequences, at the same time setting some seeds that may lead to future romantic plot threads. Some of the prose is a bit awkward, perhaps suggesting that the book was written in greater haste than the previous volume, but this is another interesting specimen of war-time juvenile fiction.

As always, the entire book may be read online or downloaded in popular eBook formats through Project Gutenberg.
