Winesburg, Ohio: A Group of Tales of Ohio Small-Town Life is a 1919 series of short stories written by American author Sherwood Anderson. The series is set in a fictional town loosely based on the author’s childhood memories of Clyde, Ohio. Now, nearly 100 years later, it’s considered one of the most influential portraits of industrial small-town life in the U.S.

Modern-day residents of Clyde, Ohio still sometimes refer to their town as “Winesburg,” and continue to echo the plain talk and small-town sentiment that made the novel popular.
