WPA Guides

I read an article in the Post recently about Zora Neal Hurston as a WPA writer for the travel guides that were produced in association with the Federal Writers Project. She wrote a travel guide to Florida. The article mentioned several other now famous writers who participated in the program as well. I was able to find a copy of John Cheever's WPA Guide to Washington DC. I can't wait to read through it.
