Literary landmark’s future

As Boston’s storied Old Corner Bookstore turns 300, BC Professor of English Paul Lewis co-authors an essay with Nathaniel Hawthorne Society President Sandy Hughes in the New England Review of Books, advocating a plan for repurposing the structure, now a home to fast-food restaurants, into a museum of Boston’s literary history. “Books not Burritos” | Lewis, who led a successful campaign to have Boston officially commemorate its connection to Edgar Allan Poe, is the author of A is for Asteroids, Z is for Zombies: A Bedtime Book about the Coming Apocalypse and Cracking Up: American Humor in a Time of Conflict, and editor of The Citizen Poets of Boston: A Collection of Forgotten Poems, 1789—1820.
