About the Author:

Jennifer Harris is associate professor of literature at the University of Waterloo and coeditor of the Norton Critical edition of The Coquette and the Boarding School.

Hilary Iris Lowe is director of the Center for Public History and assistant professor of history at Temple University. She is author of Mark Twain Houses and American Literary Tourism.

Review:

"From Page to Place reminds readers that the reputations of works of literature (like the mythologies that often inspire them) are not static or concretized once they have gone out of print or their authors have passed away but rise and fall with the vicissitudes of altering interpretive paradigms in accordance with changing cultural priorities."―Gregory Pfitzer, author of History Repeating Itself: The Republication of Children's Historical Literature and the Christian Right
