Required Summer Reading: D.C. Fiction

Read any good Washington fiction lately? There’s nothing like recognizing familiar streets and landmarks in a tale from another time.

For recommendations on 100 years of D.C. novels, check out Special Collections’ Bibliography of D.C. Fiction, featuring such memorable titles as the satire Senator Solomon Spiffledink, the mystery Epitaph for a Lobbyist, and even a first edition of The Exorcist (you knew it was a book first, right?) Even better, explore the collaborative book mapping project DC by the Book -- a project of the DC Public Library -- and download the app to search for and add your own D.C. fiction to the map.
