An evening out on the town

Monday August 19, we headed to Rye Beach for a night on the town.  Our destination: Rye Beach and the Sylvia Beach Hotel

After viewing the beach, we headed to dinner at the Sylvia Beach Hotel, named for the renowned author.

Each room is named after a different author.  How many do you recognize?

Author list bag

OK.  Here’s a hint.  The authors are listed on this handsome and functional tote bag.

No hint needed for this one: the Dr. Seuss room.

Henry Miller Memorail Restroom

Even the rest room honors an author and his words of wisdom:
