From 1892 to 1895, Kate Chopin wrote short stories for both children and adults, which were published in such magazines as Atlantic Monthly, Vogue, The Century Magazine, and The Youth's Companion. The people in her stories are usually inhabitants of Louisiana and much of her writing is set in Natchitoches in north central Louisiana. Her major works were two short story collections, Bayou Folk (1894) and A Night in Acadie (1897). Within a decade of her death, Chopin was widely recognized as one of the leading writers of her time.

This wonderful audio collection contains some of her most important and enjoyable short stories, including The Story of an Hour, The Storm, The Locket, The Kiss, Beyond the Bayou, At the Cadian Ball, The Reflection, A Pair of Stockings, A Pair of Silk Stockings, A Respectable Woman, and Ma'am Pelagie.

About the Author
Author Kate Chopin

Kate Chopin (1851–1901) was born Katherine O’Flaherty in St. Louis in 1851. She was a popular social belle, admired for her wit and beauty. In 1871 she married Oscar Chopin and lived in Louisiana until his sudden death in 1882. Chopin began writing about the Creole and Cajun people in the South, gaining acclaim for her finely crafted short stories. Upon publication in 1899, her now-classic novel The Awakening was widely condemned for its controversial themes, and Chopin was devastated by its harsh critical reception. She died in 1904, denied in her lifetime the recognition she desperately wanted and richly deserved.
