The Ohio Literary Trail – A Guide shines a spotlight on Ohio’s literary treasures and the state’s role in shaping culture and literature worldwide. Readers will discover historic homes, museums, library collections, and historical markers honoring great authors, poets, and influencers of the literary landscape. Organized by the state’s five geographic regions for a convenient self-guided tour, The Ohio Literary Trail encourages exploration from tourists planning a literary-themed outing, as well as Ohioans who want to discover cultural gems in their own backyard. Whether you are an armchair traveler or a road warrior through Ohio’s largest cities and unpaved back roads, the Guide has something for inquisitive explorers of all ages.
