Because Literary Reading Brings Wisdom to the Information Age
Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness. ~ Mark Twain


In preparation for our transition to our new redesigned website, we will be revising all existing Google Lit Trips over the next several weeks to reflect changes in our media storage location. We will be posting those revisions here on the old site as they are completed. Previous versions will cease to work properly when the new site is published.
