For centuries, Boston has been a literary hub, both home to and inspiration for writers across disciplines. From poets within the church’s congregation to classic literature seeking inspiration from its site, King’s Chapel stands within Boston as a significant site in the city’s literary landscape.
Throughout National Poetry & Literature Month, observed each April, King’s Chapel celebrates the literary contributions of the church’s historical members, writers inspired by the site or members, and of writers with their own personal links to the chapel. From learning about the church’s connections with writers from Louisa May Alcott to T.S. Eliot and many in between, we hope viewers take time for reflection and inspiration after viewing the exhibit.
Activities and writing prompts are available at the end of the exhibit.
