City Paper is not for tourists
Well, this is super cool. Via Curbed, a decent-sized list of where famous writers have lived in D.C. From Mary Church Terrell to Roald Dahl, each name includes a short bio, the address, and a photograph of where the writer lived.
For example, I didn’t realize that Sinclair Lewis, the Minnesota-born author of two of my favorite books—-Main Street and Kingsblood Royal—-wrote the former while living in D.C. According to D.C. Writers, Lewis resided at 3028 Q St. NW in Georgetown and 18 Logan Circle.
