LIBRARY OF CONGRESS


The first United States transcontinental road trip was completed in 1903, and Americans have been enamored with the open road ever since. The only thing more American than a road trip? A literary route celebrating American authors. The Library of Congress’ Language of the Land exhibit collects bookish state maps that chart the regions and the writers who loved them, either through birth or discovery.

A different type of literature map, but just as cool! Click on this lilnk to access the Gnod literature-map. This allows you to type in an author and visually find authors of similar styles. The closer two writers are in the map, the more likely someone will like both of them.  Very interactive! http://www.literature-map.com/henry+david+thoreau.html
