Today in HarperCollins history: In 1914, Harper & Brothers published Just Around the Corner (a beautifully preserved first edition pictured here), the first book by Fannie Hurst, an American novelist of the post-World War I era. 
 
Hurst went on to pen dozens of novels and short stories, many of which were published by Harper. Perhaps much of the literary limelight Hurst received stemmed from her 30 works that were made into films, including the author’s moving Imitation of Life from 1933. The 1959 remake memorably starred silver screen legend Lana Turner.
