A Literary Tour of Copley Square

Welcome to this tour of Copley Square, a brief literary overview of this public space and a taste of MassBook Trails, our literary tour app of Massachusetts.


This tour was created as a collaborative effort of Massachusetts Center for the Book and the Boston Literary District, the first such cultural district in the country.


You can find more information about Massachusetts Center for the Book, Boston Literary District, and MassBook Trails at our Trail Resources.


The tour begins at the Copley statue on the north (Boylston St.) side of the square.
