In 2004, English scholars Heather Ostman and Avis Hewitt founded the Kate Chopin International Society to promote the study of this American author "best known for her stories about sensitive daring women." KateChopin.org, which is sponsored by the Kate Chopin International Society, acts as an informational and educational site for Chopin afficionados. Visitors will find an extensive Biography of Chopin, full text of Chopin's Short Stories, and a link to the full text of The Awakening. Texts are accompanied by references to relevant critical essays, a list of themes and characters from each work, and frequently asked questions. The site's easy navigation may help students put Chopin into context and locate resources for writing assignments. Check out the News section to find out about recent Kate Chopin developments, including new translations, adaptations, and scholarship.
