The state of Minnesota has proven to be a compelling literary destination. The Land of 10,000 Lakes has been written about by Ernest Hemingway in The Torrents of Spring, called home by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and has enough independent bookstores and coffee shops to keep any literary traveler satisfied. From a sassy donut shop in Minneapolis, sidewalk poetry in St. Paul, or cozy, independent bookstores in Duluth, there's something for everyone.
So pour yourself a cup of coffee and get ready for a tour of this great midwestern state. Amy Rea guides us through Minneapolis, Angela Antony shows us around Duluth, and Kate Selner knows the best stops in St. Paul.
