The most recent Creative Minds Out Loud podcast features a discussion of local literary history (as well as its contemporary vitality) by way of the Boston Literary District. Wheatley, Emerson, Alcott, Hawthorne: so many poets and writers who have shaped the country’s literary heritage have called Boston home. What’s more, that legacy continues today, with writers continuing to live and thrive in the region, many involved with the nationally-renowned GrubStreet literary organization.
Eve Bridburg, Executive Director of GrubStreet and a founding mind behind the District, and Alysia Abbott, the District’s director, join Mass Cultural Council director Anita Walker.
They discuss the Boston Literary District, the nation’s first cultural district centered on the literary arts. Through mapping, storytelling, and important partnerships, the District shines a light on both past and current literary life in Boston.
