Literary Walking Tour: Literary Beacon Hill: The 20th Century
Limited Capacity seats available

Boston By Foot presents this healthy and edifying alternative to the boozy Lit Lounge: a 45-minute walking tour of Boston, leaving at 5:30PM from the steps of the Park Plaza Hotel!  Free for the first 45 Muse attendees who sign up in advance. Meet at the front entrance at 5:30PM to walk over to the start point. NOTE: this is a time change from the original description. 

After the likes of Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Louisa May Alcott in the 19thcentury, another literary scene evolved on Beacon Hill in the 20th century.  But, how did it compare to the Victorian "flowering of New England"? Come explore a sampling of what some later writers with Beacon Hill connections brought to American literature.  See where these literary lights lived, wrote, and worked on the Hill. Discover how their colorful, if not always happy, lives and their highly personal style differed from their repressed and proper (or properly repressed) predecessors.
