  • Susan “Susie” Glaspell

    Today, Susan Glaspell, famous author, playwright, and Pulitzer Prize winner, is known for her famous work, such as Fidelity, a strongly feminist play. Little do many know, the nationally famous Susan Glaspell grew up in Davenport, Iowa. While attending a Davenport Public School, Glaspell was featured in a book they bound and sent to the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. Glaspell’s article about the heart, full with illustration, along with the rest of the books sent, are in our collection at the library.
