About: Durham County Library will host author Trish Foxwell for a presentation from her latest book, A Visitor’s Guide to the Literary South, at 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 7, at Southwest Regional Library, 3605 Shannon Rd.

A Visitor’s Guide to the Literary South takes readers on a tour of significant places in the lives of some of the South’s most famous writers. Stops on the way include the house in Asheville, NC, that served as the model for Thomas Wolfe’s Look Homeward Angel, the hotel in Louisville, KY, that inspired F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby and Edgar Allen Poe’s home in Virginia. There are numerous photographs throughout the book, allowing readers a better look at the places Foxwell describes. The presentation will include a lecture, film, question and answer session, and book signing.

A travel writer and photographer based out of Virginia, Foxwell has written numerous articles for the Christian Science Monitor, Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe, Tennessean and Washington Times. She is also the author of Historic Hotels & Hideaways, an exploration of 30 historic hotels around Washington, D.C., where famous Americans worked and lived.
