On Thursday, October 13th, on the eve of the Boston Book Festival, come celebrate the city’s literary past, present and future at the inaugural Lit Crawl Boston, a night of irreverent literary programming in Boston’s Back Bay. From 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., intrepid readers will choose from a variety of unique literary events including games, performances, provocations and other oddities, all in surprising venues ranging from cafes and art galleries to barbershops and shoe stores.

This moveable feast in one of the most walkable cities on the planet is FREE, and most of the events will offer free beer and wine

The Boston Lit Crawl is held in three “Rounds” plus a closing reading at the Central Burying Ground (Boylston and Charles Street). Guests can choose to attend just one event during each Round - 630PM, 730PM, 830PM-- or “crawl” from event to event. The schedule is as follows:

Shaker Flynn

The Shaker is Simi Stone (The New Pornographers) and Philip Marshall (Killcool). Their first collaboration was written spontaneously—the song “240 Red White & Blue”—a response to the killing of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge the day before. Since then they have written a dozen songs, and when they perform with the poet Nick Flynn, as they will at OMEGA this tues 13 sept from 8-9, they are known collectively as Shaker Flynn
