Top Stops In Boston for the Literature Fan

Boston is one of America's great literary hubs.

Venerable authors like Emerson, Hawthorne, Thoreau, Alcott and Plath have called this city home, and with so much rich history and a deep appreciation for the literary world, it's no wonder Boston is a magnet for bookworms. Bookstores—from the conventional to the utterly singular—abound in every neighborhood. The homes of many a great writer offer tours and events. The Central Branch of the Boston Public Library alone can make a buff swoon.
