Author Terri Peterson Smith invites you to take the age-old saying “lose yourself in a good book” a step further and actually visit the setting of a beloved novel or the spot where your favorite author penned a tale. In Off the Beaten Page (Chicago Review Press, May 2013), Smith outlines a literary-inspired tour of Boulder and 14 other well-known U.S. cities. Her itineraries are ideal for weekend jaunts, combining book-related outings, like a day-trip to the Stanley Hotel (the inspiration for Stephen King’s The Shining), with classic activities such as shopping on Pearl Street Mall. Bonus: Every metropolitan area comes with an associated reading list, so you can keep the adventure going.
