Reading is an integral part of our society and has been for generations. Thanks to authors, libraries, literary foundations, and even technology companies, we will be able to pass along amazing literature to future generations.
Due to its rich history and cultural significance, Boston continues to pop up in the Written Word.
We recommend picking up "A City So Grand" by Stephen Puleo. This book provides an excellent account of the history of Boston in the 50 years between 1850 and 1900 when Boston was becoming a large and vibrant city.
