This month, we’re highlighting National Geographic’s Virtual Library, a powerful resource available to Wyoming residents through GoWyld.net. Specifically, our focus is on literary landmarks, or travel in and throughout literature. Peruse Novel Destinations: A Travel Guide to Literary Landmarks and learn more about the people and lands from classic novels by Jane Austen, Ernest Hemingway, and more. Or take a Tour of the World’s Greatest Fictional City and experience Anna Quindlen’s Imagined London.
Head on over to Nat Geo’s Virtual Library, and perform a search for “literary landmarks” or “literary travel”. You’ll discover several titles that will help you to dig deeper and learn more about far-away places that you’ve only dreamt of visiting. And how timely is this? Many folks are currently planning summer trips or vacations and while most of us can’t simply hop a flight to England to visit Tennyson’s birthplace, all Wyomingites can make a virtual stopover.
