Writers' Retreats
Literary Cabins, Creative Hideaways, and Favorite Writing Spaces of Iconic Authors

Written by: Neil Burkey

G et a glimpse into the creative habits of some of the greatest writers of the last two centuries. 

From Henry David Thoreau's famous cabin at Walden Pond and James Baldwin's 'Welcome Table' in Provence, to Roald Dahl's garden hut and Toni Morrison's sunrise-lit couch at dawn, Writers' Retreats reveals the quirky, private, and sometimes curious places where literary magic has happened. Each location is brought to life through illustration and the writer's own words on what made that place so perfect for creating.

An exploration of famous literary writers of past and present, from Emily Dickinson and Marcel Proust to Margaret Atwood, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and Alice Munro, this is the perfect bookish gift for both writers and booklovers to feed their fascination with what ignited the creativity behind their favorite works of literature.
