To newcomers, D.C. might be considered as more of political hub than a literary one, but in her new book, “A Literary Guide to Washington, D.C.,” local historian Kim Roberts wants to showcase how D.C. became a home to many prominent writers and artists throughout history. After all, Frances Hodgson Burnett used to live near Dupont Circle and some of Langston Hughes’ poems were inspired by streets in Shaw. What is the legacy of D.C. as a literary city?
