Dayton Literary Trail

DLT Banner


The Dayton Literary Trail is Wright Library's self-guided local history tour, celebrating 15 talented writers who called the Miami Valley home at some point in their lives.

Launched during our 2021 Adult Summer Reading Challenge, this semi-virtual program offers you a chance to explore and appreciate our local literary history at your own pace, by learning about and visiting each stop on the trail.

Use the Explore the Trail menu buttons to learn more, or hit the Start Your Journey button below to go straight to the trail map.
