New England Essay Contest Party
Come celebrate with snacks, merriment, and readings from our chosen contributors
October 31, 2012
7:00 PM ET
Harvard Book Store
1256 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA 02138
This event is free; no tickets are required.
We at Harvard Book Store hail from regions far and wide, but we share a special place in our hearts for our current stomping ground, New England. Home to baseball mania and lobster cookouts, bitter winters and peaceful beaches, picturesque towns and bustling cities, our history-laden corner of the country has long inspired writers to put pen to paper.
Conveniently, Harvard Book Store has held an essay contest for short essays set in or about New England.
Three selected contributors will be reading their essays, and all entrants are invited. After enjoying the readings, there will be time for refreshments and mingling.
See you there!
Walking from the Harvard Square T station: 2 minutes
