New Venues Announced for "Languages of the Land" Traveling Exhibition

Four additional sites for the Library of Congress traveling exhibition "Language of the Land: Journeys into Literary America" have now been scheduled, bringing the number of cities that will have an opportunity to see the exhibition to a total of 20 over a three-year period.

The exhibition, which examines the nation's literary heritage through picturesque literary maps, photographs evocative of specific regions of the country, and quotations from authors who have created their own lasting verbal images of America, was developed by the Library's Interpretive Programs Office in cooperation with the Geography and Map Division and the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress. It has been made possible by a generous grant from the Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Fund with additional support from the Library's James Madison Council. The exhibition is part of the Center for the Book's Literary Heritage of the States project.
