A Home for the Imagination: It grew up around the Claremont Colleges and became the most writerly of small towns

Los Angeles Times

A touching tribute to Claremont. If ever there was a must read for this site, it's this. Really well done. Makes you realize how much you take a place for granted.

I just have to add one thing the writer missed: Heroes, which is the favorite hangout of Lauren and me. It's one of those big (and good) beer, big food, and toss the peanuts on the floor kind of places. If you go to a Claremont college, you can't miss it because Kate Fairley, a nice older Irish lady and college administrator, will always remind you to go - her son owns it.
