Boston Lit Crawl 2017

We’re teaming up with Boston Literary District to sponsor Boston Lit Crawl 2017 on Newbury Street!

On the eve of the Boston Book Festival, come celebrate the city’s literary past, present and future at the 2nd Annual Boston Lit Crawl, a night of literary merry-making in Boston’s Literary District. From 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., intrepid readers will choose from a variety of unique performances and literary events (see the whole line-up here), ranging from Improv Edgar Allan Poe to Nerd Trivia to Literary Mad-Libs all in surprising venues from cafes and art galleries to barbershops and shoe stores.

This moveable feast – all along Newbury Street – is FREE, and most of the events will offer beer and wine.

At Brooks Brothers (46 Newbury St.), 8:30pm: GrubStreet and Brookline Booksmith present Literary Balderdash, a game show where all-star writers Marianne Leone, Stephen McCauley, Tom Perrotta, and Val Wang compete with the audience to rewrite works of literature and events in literary history. Hosted by Christopher Castellani.
