A Virginia State Novel?

According to a recent USA Today article, the Massachusetts House of Representatives just named Moby Dick, the state’s official “epic” novel “'Moby Dick' Sparks Massachusets Legislative Battle.” While Virginia has a state boat, and a state dance, it hasn’t matched Massachusetts with the proposal of a state book.

Got any suggestions for a Virginia state book – or author?

Here are some Virginia authors:

Rita Mae Brown

George Garrett

Ellen Glasgow

Sharyn McCrumb

Lee Smith

William Styron

Peter Taylor

Others who resided in Virginia at various times of their lives:

Sherwood Anderson

Willa Cather

John Dos Passos
