Praise For Off the Beaten Page: The Best Trips for Lit Lovers, Book Clubs, and Girls on Getaways

“It seems avid readers are equally intrepid travelers, and this handy guide caters to both impulses; in focusing on several literary destinations in the U.S., the author profiles an author from that city and adds reading lists to other related reading items.”—Booklist

"A bookworm’s dream, this title is an inspiring, unique read. Book clubs and the literary-minded will love it for the travel ideas, book lists, and delightful commentary on each city’s history. Highly recommended."—LJ Xpress Starred Review
