I’m from a teeny town in Southwestern Ohio and no one has ever heard of it (although they always do this “Oh! Lebanon! Where the dog track is!” thing. Nope. No dog track, although our mascot is the greyhound. Ha.) and the greatest thing happened yesterday.
Do you see that?! I was reading One Summer by Bill Bryson and, wa la! My teeny town!
He was talking about how many new radio stations popped up in the early 2o’s and said that even a poultry farm in New Lebanon, Ohio had a station. Greatest. Ever!
I literally got up out of bed to go show Shaun. You read that right. I was reading quietly and I got up. That was my level of excitement.
Have you ever had any cool mentions of your town or area or something that you are really familiar with in a book? Did it get you so excited you talked about it for days?
