Lit Crawl Boston – Boston Book Festival
I grew up in the Boston suburbs and graduated from Emerson College when it was still in Back Bay. At 22, I left Massachusetts to spread my wings, moving first to Northern Virginia, then exploring the state New Jersey, eventually settling in Monmouth County (exit 117 😉).
Recently, I’ve felt a strong pull to be back in Boston. Several times during my illness (which started in 2009), different scenarios have been posited for moving back to Massachusetts. The bottom line is I haven’t been well enough to move: all of my doctors are here, and I’ve got a great team – that’s a challenge to put together and it wouldn’t be prudent to start over (especially now that I’m making some progress).
Nevertheless, I still feel the pull of the history and opportunities. I dream of going back, not as an invalid, but ready to make a contribution. My job now is to get well so I can make my dreams a reality.
Get ready for a night of literary mayhem and merry making. The 2nd Annual Boston Lit Crawl is Thursday, October 26th from 6:30-9:30pm! This evening of fun is free, and it all takes place along Newbury Street and throughout the Literary District.
Check out the schedule and sign up for your favorite activities.
P.S. Be sure to add Literary Balderdash, a game show presented by GrubStreet and Brookline Booksmith, to your Lit Crawl itinerary!

About this quote:
August 6, 1996: A Game of Thrones was first published 21 years ago today. George R.R. Martin wrote the landmark fantasy novel (as well as its sequels) on a thirty-year-old PC using a rather ancient WordStar 4.0 word processor. He owns a separate computer for checking his email.
