Founders Memorial Library Exhibits - January 2016
The current exhibit presents dime novels by, for, and about women. This includes novels by authors like Ann S. Stephens, Metta Victor, and
Mary A. Denison, as well as series aimed specifically at a woman audience, such as Waverley Library. Also featured are examples of
transgressive women in mainstream series, like Nick Carter Weekly and Deadwood Dick Library, starring women as detectives,
cowboys, and criminals. Many of the dime novels in this exhibit are available online to be read and downloaded through NIU’s digital dime
novel collection, Nickels and Dimes (http://dimenovels.lib.niu.edu).
