Literary Locales

One of my absolute favorite PBS mini-series is Anne of Green Gables. Every year I sequester myself for a weekend, and watch the entire DVD set start to finish. This year, I’ve decided that its high time I actually sit down to read the books that the series is based on.

This had me thinking about visiting Prince Edward Island to see Green Gables in person. Then this thought led to the other literary locales I’d like to visit before I kick the bucket.
