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.
