THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT!

Where did Charles Dickens practice his reading of “A Christmas Carol” before speaking in front of an American audience? Where did the Transcendentalists hang out on the last Saturday of every month? Where did Ho Chi Minh and Malcolm X work before they were Ho Chi Minh and Malcolm X? Susan Wilson is back by popular demand to uncover the rich literary history of the Omni Parker House!

ArtWeek participants will be given a private talk and tour of the hotel, retracing the steps of renowned writers, including those of the “Golden Age of American Literature” like Emerson, Thoreau, Hawthorne, and Longfellow as well as Mark Twain, Willa Cather, and Britain’s Charles Dickens.

This season, we are asking for a $10 donation to be made to confirm registration – all proceeds will benefit the Boston Literary District. As always, this interactive tour will include the famous Parker House rolls. Limited to the first 15 registrants. Please meet in the Parker’s Bar, up the stairs to the left via the School Street entrance.
