Lit Crawl Boston

Lit Crawl Boston is coming up from 6–9 pm on Thursday, June 10 in Cambridge’s Central Square. Lit Crawl features more than a dozen separate readings, performances, and interactive games—all held outdoors in some of Cambridge’s hippest restaurant patios and performance venues.

Come join us and your fellow Boston-area bibliophiles for a night to celebrate the healing power of the written (and spoken) word. We’re hosting more than a dozen separate sessions in all. Improvise a murder with the Mystery Writers of America. Go there with Tell-All Boston. Request a Poem to Go from Mass Poetry. And then get ready to be tucked in with GrownUp Story Time.

Lit Crawl is organized into three “phases” at 6:00, 7:00, and 8:00 p.m., with attendees’ choice of four or five different activities happening during each phase. With the exception of drop-in activities, Lit Crawlers will need to register for each activity, to maintain capacity limits set by the venues. While Lit Crawl Boston is traditionally a free event, this year, there will be a $15 charge for all restaurant sessions. This fee is to help support the local businesses
that have been hard-hit by the pandemic.
