The Albany Literary History Pub Crawl is BACK for #PathThroughHistory Fall Weekend!A team of guides with a tome of tales will lead you and your friends through Albany’s historic Center Square. We’ll admire the buildings, visit some pubs, but more importantly, your guides will tell you the stories behind Albany’s surprising literary history. Albany was the home to many literary legends, such as our own William Kennedy and Gregory Maguire. But what other literary luminaries wandered these streets? Did Herman Melville find inspiration for ‘Moby Dick’ in his own backyard? What’s the connection between Vladimir Nabokov and the Albany Pine Bush? This and more will be revealed on the tour!About Tour Guide Maeve McEneny:Maeve McEneny Johnson is the program coordinator at the Albany Visitor Center.
