Imaginary States: Winnemac

Posted in Beinecke Library by beineckepoetry on July 31, 2008

A map of novelist Sinclair Lewis’s United States, including the imagined state of Winnemac which Lewis describes as “bounded by Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, and Indiana” (the state appears as the shaded area on this map). Lewis’s archive has recently been fully organized and  a detailed description is now available online: Sinclair Lewis Papers. For more information about the state, visit the Winnemac entry in Wikipedia.
