Literary Wisconsin

Wisconsin has a wide-ranging list of author and literary spots to visit.  Environmentalists, Scandinavians, and lovers of all things Little House will be delighted. Friends of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth will be astonished and equally enchanted, as well as readers of contemporary novels that became major feature films.
