Omni Parker House Literary Tour
October 4, 2016 at 1:30 pm–3:00 pm
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 showcase will occur in conjunction with Boston’s Literary District.
Limited to the first 15 registrants. To register, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once registered, meet up at Parker’s Bar at the appointed day and time, a half flight up from the 60 School Street entrance to the hotel.
