Travel guide with 2021 twist: Writers laud places
Sixteen notable writers have created a combined list of places that they believe helped shape and define America. The resulting collection of mini- essays, including contributions from memoirist Cheryl Strayed, novelist Jodi Picoult, humorist David Sedaris and activist Gloria Steinem, was organized by Frommer’s, the travel guidebook company. The collection can be read for free online. The compilation is designed to be food for thought rather thanan invitation to hit the road. The other contributors and their destinations are Daniel Okrent, Ellis Island, New York City; Sarah Mustafah, Arab American National Museum in Dearborn, Michigan; Margaret Verble, Fort Gibson, Oklahoma; Dar Williams, Detroit.
