The Winner is….

Edith Wharton will visit the Classics Circuit in January!

Out of 54 votes, 40% voted for Edith Wharton, 27% for John Steinbeck, 16% for Mark Twain, and 14% for Willa Cather.

We will only be doing one tour in January at this point. I’m hoping that even if your selected author wasn’t chosen, you may be inspired to read some of his or her work during January anyway!

Sign up will be either next week or the next. I am also hoping to post a poll so you can share your feedback on the Circuit thus far. (Note: Do not sign up on this post!)

I hope you are enjoying this first week of the Collins tour! Keep reading those classics!
