Literature & Drama tours

It may seem perverse to take that most solitary of intellectual pursuits, reading, and construct around it a tour for a group of twenty. And yet, what better way to gain a new perspective on a work of fiction than to see with one’s own eyes the places that inspired its creation? How better to become more closely acquainted with a text than to discuss it in the company of other aficionados, under the direction of an expert—or of the author themselves? All our small-group tours are led by expert lecturers, chosen for their companionability and communication skills as well as their scholarship.
