Literary New York

The New York Public LibraryThe New York Public Library

If you want your studies of English and World Literatures to be immersed in literary history and enriched by once-in-a-lifetime literary and cultural events, then the question is:

Why go anywhere other than New York City?

New York City bursts with literary history and culture — from Shakespeare in the Park and the Public Theater to the New York Public Library and Strand Bookstore in the East Village.

It’s a city where the streets offer a map of literary history filled with places from which classics sprang. The literary past of New York City is only surpassed by its present— find writing, performance, and cultural events any night of the week.
