Most have heard Bucks County is famous for its landmarks and covered bridges, but did you know we are also quite well known for some great authors?
In 1932, “The Good Earth” written by Pearl S. Buck of Perkasie won a Pulitzer Prize as well as a Nobel Prize. She was known for her work as an advocate for women’s and minority rights. Guided tours of her 1825 farmhouse are available. The National Landmark also boasts a gift shop, amazing gardens and special events.
James A. Michener wrote over 40 books, most of which incorporated history as well as local geographic family sagas. He won a Pulitzer Prize for “Tales of the South Pacific” in 1948. Located in Doylestown, the James A. Michener Art Museum shows the artistic beauty of Bucks County.
Ever heard of the Berenstain Bears? Authors Stan and Jan Berenstain of Solebury became well known in 1962, when the first Berenstain Bears book was published.
