Right here I see my own books : the Woman's Building Library at the World's Columbian Exposition by Sarah Wadsworth( )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,039 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On May 1, 1893, the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago opened its gates to an expectant public eager to experience firsthand its architectural beauty, technological marvels, and vast array of cultural treasures gathered from all over the world. Among the most popular of the fair's attractions was the Woman's Building, a monumental exhibit hall filled with the products of women's labor--including more than 8,000 volumes of writing by women. Right Here I See My Own Books examines the progress, content, and significance of this historic first effort to assemble a comprehensive library of women's texts. By weaving together the behind-the-scenes story of the library's formation and the stories between the covers of books on display, Wadsworth and Wiegand firmly situate the Woman's Building Library within the historical context of the 1890s. Interdisciplinary in approach, their book demonstrates how this landmark collection helped consolidate and institutionalize women's writing in conjunction with the burgeoning women's movement and the professionalization of librarianship in late nineteenth-century America. Americans in this period debated a wide range of topics, including women's rights, gender identity, racial politics, nationalism, regionalism, imperialism, and modernity. These debates permeated the cultural climate of the Columbian Exposition. Wadsworth and Wiegand's book illuminates the range and complexity of American women's responses to these issues within a public sphere to which the Woman's Building provided unprecedented access

In the company of books : literature and its "classes" in nineteenth-century America by Sarah Wadsworth( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With sections focusing on segmentation by age, gender, and cultural status, 'In the company of books' analyzes the ways authors and publishers carved up the field of literary production into a multitude of distinct submarkets, differentiated their products and targeted specific groups of readers in order to guide their book-buying decisions. Combining innovative approaches to canonical authors such as Nathaniel Hawthorne, Louisa May Alcott, Mark Twain, and Henry James with engaging investigations into the careers of many lesser-known literary figures, this book reveals how American writers responded to -- and contributed to -- this diverse, and diversified, market

Oddly Enough by Sarah Wadsworth( Book )

Oddly enough, for Lindsay Adams a move from the busy life of her hometown Washington, DC, to the rural life in West Virginia becomes not so much about a choice as a fulfillment of destiny. The journey the reader takes with this protagonist, a funny and insightful though confused twenty-five year old, back and forth between the two seemingly polariz
