Writing Program 156: Good Guys & Gals? Quaker Imagery in Fiction (Lapsansky) Fall 2014

Finding Novels

 - Browse the Harvey Peace Room in Special Collections which holds only Quaker Fiction. The books between the red card markers are those that contain Quaker characters. You can also do a call number search in Tripod Classic for BX7724 which will give you books containing Quaker characters.


- Also, in Tripod, search the subject heading "Society of Friends - Fiction," limited to Haverford Special Collections. You might find it useful to sort by date.

Book Reviews

  • Check the description of your novel in Tripod, a citation for a review of the book may be given
  • Browse recent Quaker journals up to a year or more after the book's publication

  • Mainstream publications may provide a wider perspective on Quaker novels and put the Quaker character in current context. See the resources on the Book Reviews Library Guide. (Hint: try Book Review Index first).
