Lit Crawl Boston

On Thursday, October 26th, on the eve of the Boston Book Festival, come celebrate the city’s literary past, present and future at the second annual Lit Crawl Boston, a night of irreverent literary programming in Boston’s Literary District. From 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., intrepid book lovers will choose from a variety of unique literary events including games, performances, provocations and other oddities, all in surprising venues ranging from cafes and salons to barbershops and shoe stores.

This moveable feast in one of the most walkable cities on the planet is FREE, and most of the events will offer free beer and wine.

Hosted by the Boston Literary District as a prelude to the Boston Book Festival, with the support of the Litquake Foundation, Lit Crawl Boston will convene some of Boston’s most creative minds to raise a glass or two to the magic of the written and spoken word. The event will feature appearances by many of Boston’s rock-star writers and offbeat tributes to literary idols such as James Joyce and Edgar Allan Poe.

Program hosts are set to include a who’s who of Boston’s literary community, including GrubStreet, MassLEAP, 826 Boston and Ploughshares. At Lit Crawl Boston, we’ll serve up authors you can’t wait to read and social and literary interactions you won’t soon forget.

Come thirsty. We'll feed your mind.
