From the Women's National Book Association of DC Literary Map Chair:
Did you know that Louisa May Alcott was a nurse in Georgetown during the Civil War? Or that Mark Twain served as secretary to a Nevada senator in the late 1860s? Or that Ezra Pound was a patient at St. Elizabeths Hospital from 1946 to 1958? If you had WNBA’s own Literary Map of Washington, DC, you would know. These are just a few of the tidbits to be found in this unique publication. And it’s a great gift for anyone on your list who loves books--your neighbor, your child’s English teacher, yourself. Visit WNBA’s website for info on how to order the Literary Map: //www.wnba-books.org/wash/map.html
And speaking of literary DC, I'll be posting something shortly about Richard Peabody's latest anthology of Washington women writers... So, more anon.
