“Of course, in a novel, people’s hearts break, and they die, and that is the end of it; and in a story this is very convenient.”

This may be the most exciting thing that has happened today!

Yesterday was the 170th birthday of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s famous novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, which was first serialized in 1851, but published in book form on March 20, 1852.

Of course, The Harriet Beecher Stowe House is nestled on the corner of Gilbert and Foraker Avenues in Walnut Hills. They offer tours, programs, and discussion groups throughout the year, including the Semi-Colon Club, which is “a literary discussion group Harriet joined while living in Cincinnati.” You can learn more about The Harriet Beecher Stowe House and their programming here.

What has us at the Hamilton County Law Library all excited today, however, is that we just learned that HeinOnline has a digitized version of Uncle Tom’s Cabin on their platform, and access to HeinOnline is a benefit for Law Library subscribers.

This benefit is reserved for solo attorneys and 100% subscribing firms. HeinOnline also requires that subscribing firms have fewer than 50 attorneys for remote access.

Please feel free to contact us if you would like to learn more about how to access the digital version of Uncle Tom’s Cabin.
