Literary Lunch Break

The Boston Literary District hates to see you eating alone at your desk. That’s why we’re putting on Literary Lunch Break! Come hear eight of Boston’s best authors speak, sign, and shmooze about their latest books right under South Station’s Destination Board. The roster includes three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Stephen Kurkjian, veteran journalist Dick Lehr, Omni Parker House historian Susan Wilson, and pediatrician and musician Lisa Wong.
