The Delaware Author Adventures Trail is less than an hour long, featuring three completely different types of locations, including a museum celebrating the life of a legendary illustrator, the college that was founded in 1743 where a contemporary young adult author studied sport medicine, and a special library’s collection of rare writings by such luminaries as poet Alice Moore Dunbar-Nelson.
