America's most celebrated authors are immortalized not only in their writing but also in the museums, libraries, and other memorials dedicated in their honor. Over 260 authors and the sites devoted to them are covered in this guide. The sites, ranging from restored historic homes to memorial statues, are arranged by state. Each entry describes the site and its history, placing it within the context of the author's life and career. Directions are provided to help the reader reach each site; telephone numbers, admission prices, and hours are also included for the traveller's convenience. The text is illustrated with 197 photographs and illustrations from these historic and literary homes, libraries, and other important memorial locations. An index allows easy reference to multiple sites devoted to one author.
