Literary Hudson Valley

When I took a sweet, long drive up the Hudson River
valley last fall, I remarked to my wife how deep the literary history of the place seemed to be. From Washington Irving
to Gore Vidal and Edna St. Vincent Millay, the voices of some of our great literary heroes still echo in the woods and
over the cold tombstones of this well-known, but not oft celebrated region. So it was nice to see the Sunday Times of London takes a look at the
Hudson River Valley and to do so with a decidedly literary bent. We
experience the valley through a woman named Sarah Anderson, who ran the Travel Bookshop in west London for 25 years.
From the favorite haunts of literary heroes to bookstores that remind you why people used to shop for books off-line,
the article here is a nice little dose of history and art.
