Overview

From the father of American English to the most famous novelist in America, Connecticut has produced and inspired a dazzling array of literary talent. Discover the secret passage to James Merrill�s study in Stonington or navigate Hartford�s Nook Farm neighborhood�a home and hub of inspiration to Harriet Beecher Stowe, Mark Twain and William Gillette. As an adult, Helen Keller�s stomping grounds were the woods and gardens of Easton, while Eugene O�Neill�s childhood home in New London found its way into the pages of his greatest work. These authors drove the same roads, frequented the same taverns and read the same books as the nutmeggers of today. Explore Connecticut�s literary landscape with Eric D. Lehman and Amy Nawrocki as they introduce readers to some of the greatest writers who found a home in the Constitution State.
