Happy new year! Here are some authors whose works are back in the public domain: J. M. Barrie, Jean de Brunhoff, H. P. Lovecraft, Maurice Ravel, and Edith Wharton. (If you live in Canada, you get even more.)
Thanks to John Mark Ockerbloom and to BoingBoing for the reminder that with every new year, some works become public. At least until the next copyright extension law is passed.

I'm an academic librarian at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota. Like all librarians at our small, liberal arts institution I am involved in reference, collection development, and shared management of the library. My area of specialization is instruction, with research interests also in media literacy, popular literacy, publishing, and assessment.
