Finding little-known work by authors means gold — sometimes –

He’s not just hanging out: Steve Hines spends his time looking for gold at the Nashville Public Library. And he’s found some: obscure works by famous authors that are now in the public domain.


“Hines found a forgotten (Louisa May) Alcott story titled “Patty’s Place” while looking through a 1920 copy of St. Nicholas magazine for children in the Nashville library. He published that story as “The Quiet Little Woman,” along with another story he found, “Kate’s Choice,” and sold about 350,000 copies.”
