The Wisconsin Library Association published the Wisconsin Literary Travel Guide in 1989. The guide highlights Wisconsin’s literary contributions and connections. It connects Wisconsin writers with the places in Wisconsin where they lived and wrote about. It is arranged alphabetically by community. The source for much of the material were the Wisconsin Notable Authors list and the Banta Award recipients. The guide was dedicated to Wisconsin Library Hall of Fame member Orrilla Blackshear. In 2012 WLA put the contents of the guide on the Campaign for Wisconsin Libraries website.
