KateChopin.org provides a network for scholars interested in Kate Chopin, and it acts as a bridge between scholars and others—students, teachers, librarians, journalists, playwrights, filmmakers, translators, book club members, bloggers, and other readers in countries around the world.
It is an informational site, an educational site, dedicated to the reading and study of Kate Chopin’s fiction. It seeks to provide accurate information about Chopin and her work in a form accessible to a large international audience.
It does not post commercial messages. It posts announcements of books, films, or plays dealing with Kate Chopin, but it does not link to Amazon or Barnes and Noble, and it does not accept payment for posting notices. Except for out-of-date announcements of conferences, presentations, productions, or other events, it does not remove posted information. Other than standard usage data, it does not collect information about visitors.
It includes a search icon at the top right of each page and an alphabetical table of contents through a “sitemap” link at the bottom left of each page.
The site is sponsored by the Kate Chopin International Society. It is revised regularly. Its posting date appears in the footer at the bottom of each page.
