Do you have a favorite book set in your home state? Do you recall a work that captures the essence of a particular state, that made you feel like you know that place better for having read the book? Please feed me your titles in the comments – I’d much prefer to follow your recommendations than choose based on book reviews and marketing blurbs.
My biggest challenge is finding authors of color from each state who set their work in that state. If you read diversely, please check my post, Authors of color from each US state – will you help me fill the gaps?, and let me know you have any titles you can suggest. Thank you.
