Inspired by the book Novel Destinations by Shannon McKenna Schmidt, the Friends have been sponsoring day trips to nearby homes of authors, beginning with a trip to Concord, Mass. to visit the homes of Louisa May Alcott and Nathaniel Hawthorne. We have toured the homes of Mark Twain, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Edith Wharton, Washington Irving and Robert Todd Lincoln.
In May 2011, the Friends embarked on a two week literary tour of England. They have subsequently visited Ireland and France. In May, 2015, the Friends took a two week tour of the West Country of England, led by tour director, John Goldsmith. Membership in the Friends entitles people to a discount on the trips. Trips to Ireland, the Canadian Rockies, and Austria and Switzerland, have been planned in collaboration with Collette Tours. A trip to Michigan, including Mackinac Island, has been planned for fall, 2022.
