Feedback form is now closed.
In 2017, Boston's Office of Arts & Culture published "City of Notions," a collection of verse, edited by Boston poet laureate Danielle Legros Georges, touching on all aspects of life in Boston, from the Boston Marathon to the MBTA. As part of the Lit Crawl, the city is assembling some of the collection's best contributors for one bring-the-house-down poetry reading.

This event is brought to you, in part, by the Downtown Boston Business Improvement District.
