Literary City Guide | Bellingham, WA

“It was the rough edge of the world, where the trees came smack down to the stones. The shore looked to Ada as if the corner of the continent had gotten torn off right here, sometime near yesterday, and the dark trees kept on growing, like nothing happened. The ocean just filled in the tear and settled down.”

— Annie Dillard, The Living

North of Seattle, almost at the Canadian border, is Bellingham. This coastal city in Washington is filled to the brim with literary finds, like bookstores with floor to ceiling stacks of books, and unique takes on coffee, like a honey rose latte.

Hannah is finishing her B.A. in Creative Writing, and takes us on a tour of her adopted city in today's newest addition to literary city guides.
