Literary Beacon Hill: The 20th Century (2:00 p.m.) -- CANCELLED
Sunday, September 15, 2019, 2:00 PM
Park St. MBTA Station, corner of Park St. & Tremont St.
Registration is not Required
After the likes of Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Louisa May Alcott in the 19th century, 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. Meet outside the Park Street MBTA Station Corner of Park and Tremont Streets. BHV Members & Guests: $14.00 for private tour.
