Lit Week 2014: Harvard Square Literary Walking Tour
Presented by Harvard LitFest and Grub Street
April 30, 2014
Whether you prefer Michael Crichton's Jurassic Park or H.W. Longfellow's The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere, something you love to read came out of Cambridge. Come discover which of your favorite writers attended Harvard, who of the literati grew up there, and how our Fair City has contributed to American literature from the very first book printed in British North America in the 1600s to the recent Harry Potter parties of the early 2000s. Cambridge Historical Tour guides, clad in signature Victorian outfits, will tell you stories of authors' antics, quote their best work, and show you why literature in this country would never be the same without the incredible contributions that have emerged from the oldest college town in the country. The meeting spot is in front of the Harvard Coop at 1400 Mass Ave. Lit Week pleasantly coincides with Harvard University's Lit Fest, which takes place April 29th-May1st.
