Author Richard Wright, through his publishing firm, New England Bookstore Publishing, has written a Travel Guide/Memoir focusing on his favorite 25 rural New England booksellers and suggested One-Day Bookstore Tours. The book is titled, A Vacationer's Guide to Rural New England Bookstores, intended as a guide for tourists when visiting premier vacation locations throughout New England.
In addition to providing a description of the what a tourist will find at the bookstore, Wright describes events from his childhood as well as recent visits to the shops he has tagged as favorites. He also cites many more bookstores that have special meaning or characteristics for tourists to consider when making vacation plans.
The website, Guide To New England Bookstores, serves as a convenient place to update changes and addtions to his book and a forum for discussing the future of the vanishing locally owned, independent rural bookstore.
