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.
