  • Overview

    Meet up at the Albany Public Library Local History Room and set out for a Literary Pub Crawl led by Maeve McEneny and friends.

    A team of guides with a tome of tales will lead you and your friends through Albanys historic Center Square.  Well admire the buildings, visit some pubs, but more importantly, your guides will tell you the stories behind Albanys 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? Whats the connection between Vladimir Nabokov and the Albany Pine Bush? This and more will be revealed on the tour!

    The group will gather in the Local History Room of the Albany Public Library for meet-and-greet and an Albany Author display by Jim Davies. Latecomers should meet outside the Washington Ave entrance of the Library.
