Publisher Description:

Most of the readers and writers we know, far from being the sort to only haunt the recesses of their town's library or curl up on the couch when the sun's shining, like to get out and visit the places they've read about. Or the places that inspire them.

Lone Star Literary Life polled our staff about the places in Texas that fueled their bookish imaginations. What literary destinations called to them, to get out the map, get in the car, and go? Was it a whim to attend a festival, a desire to follow in a favorite author's footsteps, an urge to browse the shelves of an unusual bookshop, a hunt for a novel's real-life inspiration?

We gathered our top list of alluring locales from the piney woods to the prairies, in big cities and small, from the coast to the mountains. We ranked and researched and ranked some more.

We hope that Lone Star Literary Life readers will find something here you didn't know before--and even if you have to just toss all ten names in a hat and take turns choosing the next goal for a road trip, you'll enjoy what you find when you get there.
