"That's the thing about books.
They let you travel without moving your feet."
|The most famous books set in every state|
(Please note: Books listed here are for adult readers!)
If you need an expert on the geography and people of the United States, find a grade 4 RES student!
All year, our students have been researching, writing and reading about our country. In addition, each student is conducting an in-depth study of a particular state. All of this work will be celebrated soon at a special presentation for parents and families.
I was reminded of their work during a recent visit to the Rockport Public Library, where a selection of the "Most famous books set in every state" was on display. This list was most recently published in Business Insider . Does this gray, drizzly weather have you dreaming of warmer climates? How about traveling to sunny California through the pages of East of Eden by John Steinbeck? Wondering about life in Big Sky country? Try A River Runs Through It and Other Stories by Norman Maclean. Take a minute to browse through the LIST. Is there a state you would like to travel to through the pages of a book? Have you read the book from your home state? Add the titles from these states - or your favorite state - in the comments sections below. Happy reading!
