Upcoming Event
Saturday, June 30, 2018 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm

Washington, D.C. isn’t only a political town—it ranked second on Highbrow’s list of top American literary cities and came in at number eight on National Geographic Traveler’s top ten literary cities of the world. There’s plenty in D.C. for the litterateur to discover, from the Library of Congress to the places Henry Adams and Zora Neale Hurston lived and wrote. In her informative walking tour and anthology, Roberts, a D.C.-based freelance literary historian, writer, and editor, maps the city chronologically, taking visitors and armchair travelers through the places that shaped the works of figures including Francis Scott Key, Charlotte Forten Grimké, James Weldon Johnson, Walt Whitman, Paul Laurence Dunbar and Alice Dunbar-Nelson, Langston Hughes, and many more.
