Minneapolis has been named the “Most Literate City” in the United States, USA Today reports.
The Minnesota city — which is appropriately currently hosting the Association for Writers & Writing Programs Conference — was given the title in the 12th annual “Most Literate City” study, conducted by Central Connecticut State University president Dr. Jack Miller.
Washington D.C., which held the title for the last four years, was bumped down to the number two spot. It is followed by Seattle, St. Paul (also in Minnesota) and Atlanta.
The study looked at data surrounding local bookstores, library resources, newspaper circulation and education levels.
