With the closing of Barnard Taylor’s Appletree Alley Press in Lewisburg, PA several years ago, Mr. Taylor’s friends, printer Carl Darrow from the Greenleaf Press and book binder Don Rash, combined their talents to complete the Press’ final project, Novelists Speak: American Fiction in the 1940’s. Novelists Speak… is the last in the Ellen Clarke Bertrand Library series created to publish content from Bertrand Library’s manuscript collections housed in Special Collections/University Archives. Publications from the Appletree Alley Press are fine, limited editions that have been created by letterpress and bound by hand.
Novelists Speak: American Fiction in the 1940’s brings together letters written by prominent American novelists who were questioned by Harry Warfel, (Bucknell alumnus and former Professor of English at Bucknell), about their novels and writing processes. Included in the book are letters written to Warfel from Saul Bellow, Kay Boyle, John Dos Passos, Ernest Hemingway, Zora Neale Hurston, Henry Miller, and other writers.
Special Collections/University Archives is pleased to add Novelists Speak: American Fiction in the 1940’s to its collection. This title, and other Appletree Alley Press titles, are available for viewing in the department. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
