Join two published local authors for a tour that takes you to places where writers including Robert Frost and Harriet Beecher Stowe visited Newton. Learn more about authors who studied literature at Newton’s high schools and see the work of contemporary poets stamped into the sidewalk through the city’s Make Poetry Concrete program. You’ll hear a few poems read aloud, too, including some by Pulitzer Prize-winning Newtonians. This tour will be led by Clara Silverstein and Grey Held.

Most tours last approximately 1 hour. We go at an easy pace and typically cover ½ – 1 mile. We encourage you to wear sturdy shoes and bring a water bottle. All ages welcome!

Tour dates and topics are subject to change. The meeting location for each walking tour will be shared after registration. 

Historic Newton’s walking tours are sponsored by Newton-Wellesley Hospital.
