Travel Guide

Booktrail a literary Vermont

The novel is set in Vermont at a university but the college in the novel – Ripley college – and the halls mentioned are not real. The setting is important but the locations are not and this novel could take place anywhere academic to be fair.


Burlington is a city in northwestern Vermont, on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain, south of the Canadian border. This is mentioned in the novel when describing the corner of Vermont where the fictional  college is located.


Hanover is a town located along the Connecticut River in Grafton County, New Hampshire. The novel mentions that the fictional college is not far away.
