A DC Literary Tour

We'll walk between Woodley Park and Dupont Circle Metro Stations, by way of as many homes that were once inhabited by writers as we can find

    I uploaded an improved version of the literary tour guide. Quotes from every author. You can find by clicking on the "More" tab, and then choosing "Files".

    It was great. Wonderful weather, interesting history, fascinating conversations, great beer, and more...

    This was my first meet up, ever. I was a little skeptical after the wait, but it was well worth all that time! I love how you chose passages from each author. Good work and I won't hesitate to go on the next tour!

    Thank you for this walk. If the gentleman who took photos of the well used BMW motorcycle from San Francisco parked in DuPont could post them, I would appreciate it. Next time, I will make sure I can take my own photos:)

    Thank you John and Karen! I am so much smarter than I was before this walk. And reading literary passages was a brilliant idea. Until next time

    shoot, this looked like a great tour on a comfortable afternooon, but we just couldn't hang out that long before we had a leader. Hope you will offer this one again. The handouts are really interesting, and you always add so much more. i'm glad this eventually turned out to be a good tour for others.

    I left at 1:50 and John, the guide still wasn't there. It was a bit disappointing for my first meetup with this group.

    Sorry, everyone, I had to leave early. Just caught the bus back home. It was a great tour. Thank you, John, for leading us! And it was great to meet people. Looking forward to future events. :-)

    We walked down to Calvert, went left on Calvert, crossed the bridge and are at Calvert and Biltmore right over the bridge. About a 5 minute walk from the metro.

  • Karen R.

    We are leaving soon from the metro stop but will be walking to Calvert and 20th St.

    John, is there a meeting place at the Metro? I can't recall how this one looks, so it may be there is only one out and that will be the obvious location. Looking forward to this!

      There's just one exit/entrance at Woodley Park. But the info section mentions 2700 Connecticut...so I'm at a loss about which place is best to meet to! :-) I'll just be by the metro entrance. And check the board.

      July 19, 2014

    • Karen R.

      We will meet outside the metro.

    John: Do you have an estimate of how long we'll be out?
