A to Z Blogging Challenge - V is for Vowell

 Sarah Vowell is the woman who makes history fun. Assassination Vacation is the first book of hers I read. Basically she goes on a road trip visiting historical sites of presidents that were assassinated. While it may not be your ideal vacation it did inspire The Husband and I to go and visit the birthplace of Chester Arthur here in Vermont. He became president after the assassination of James Garfield.

This post is part of the A to Z Blogging Challenge. I encourage you to click through and explore some of the links to what other bloggers are doing.
