Boston has a deep, rich relationship with the written word. From Knox’s bookstore to the Ticknor & Fields publishing offices, from Hawthorne, Fuller, and Longfellow to Plath, Parker, and Perrota, Boston’s history as the Athens of America is well-known. That intellectual tradition continues today in the many universities, science and technology centers, historical societies, and literary scene.
Our story here at the Boston Book Blog is simple: The Boston Book Blog was created as a way to locate all the spokes of the Boston literary scenes into one hub. If you find yourself newly arrived to the city and unsure of where to start, or if you’ve been here for a while and wish to explore our multifaceted literary scene, we’ve created this guide for you.
