Literary Sites

Monterey County has been the inspiration for several famed authors for over century. John Steinbeck is probably the most famous native son, but poet Robinson Jeffers built a home in Carmel, and Henry Miller lived in Big Sur. Ed Ricketts wrote his classic treatise "Between Pacific Tides" after studying the shoreline creatures along Monterey's coast. Even Treasure Island author Robert Louis Stevenson spent some time here. If you're a fan of these popular writers, don't miss the some of the notable literary sites in the area including the National Steinbeck Center, Robinson Jeffers' Tor House and the Henry Miller Library.
