Albany’s Literary Pub Crawl returns for Path Through History weekend!

Guide Maeve McEneny Johnson will lead you and your friends through Albany’s historic Center Square. We’ll admire the buildings, visit some pubs, but most importantly, your guides will reveal Albany’s literary history. Many literary legends have called Albany home, including 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!

Please arrive at the Albany NY Library Local History Room between 4:00 - 4:30pm to check-in. Latecomers, meet a guide at the Washington Ave Library Front Door between 4:30 - 5:00.
