Ohioana Literary Trail: Helen Hooven Santmyer, one of the first Rhodes Scholars

This week, we wrap up our tour of stops in the greater Dayton area on the Ohioana Literary Trail in Xenia, at the marker for Helen Hooven Santmyer. Santmyer is best known for her novel, “…And Ladies of the Club,” which was 1,344 pages long and the best-selling novel of 1984. The novel, published when she was 88, won her both critical acclaim and national recognition. The novel is about a group of women in fictional Waynesboro, Ohio and tracks their lives between 1868 and 1932.
