This week, we travel back to the United States to visit Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Harrisburg is the capital city of the state and lies on the banks of the Susquehanna River. Other claims to fame for the city include it playing large roles in the American Civil War and the Industrial Revolution. It is also only 10 miles away from Hershey, Pennsylvania, home of the chocolate makers…..yum!
How does it relate to books? Well, it’s a frequent haunt for the characters in Megan Hart’s
novels, which I’m sure alot of you are aware of. I wasn’t, until The Geeky Lover suggested it. Now, I’ve started reading Megan Hart’s Dirty
in an attempt to get some background information 😉 I will admit being disappointed to discover that The Slaughtered Lamb is not an actual pub in Harrisburg, though I found one in NYC.
I couldn’t find any overly exciting pics of Harrisburg, though the river reflections, etc. are lovely. I think the steaminess of Megan’s books are what spice up living in Harrisburg for her fictional characters. Let me know what you think. And anyone that has a better idea of the hotspots in Harriburg, please feel free to share!
