I received this tweet the other day from a local friend:
As soon as I read through the list, and the author’s reasoning behind putting the list together, I knew I needed to add a link to the map to my Andrea Reads America resources. The article’s author, Kristen Iverson, explains about her book choices:
“All are literary in voice and spirit; every last one will let you understand a time and place in a more profound way than you maybe thought possible.”
I was particularly excited to see titles from my to-read list on there, along with some of my favorites that are usually edged out by other titles. I knew this list was for me when I saw the New Hampshire pick was not the obvious Hotel New Hampshire but the even better John Irving choice: A Prayer For Owen Meany.
