Welcome to Four Stories - One evening, four urban narratives Email sign up

Four Stories is a literary series bridging Greater Boston’s nightlife and arts community (and now Tokyo's, too!). Each event is held in a club, bar, or lounge, and features appearances from some of the most acclaimed authors in the nation, all reading their work under a unified theme. It was founded by the writer Tracy Slater.

For 2014-2015, Four Stories in the U.S. is being run by the devastatingly sexy trio of Tim Huggins, Sari Boren, and Steven Beeber!

The idea: to bring writers and readers, intellectuals and club-goers, friends and interested people together in a more upscale environment than a bookstore, to think, drink, eat, talk, laugh, hear stories, trade tales. It's simple, amusing, thought-provoking, and free for entry.

The experience: like a 19th-Century salon, only 150 years later―same socializing, same witty banter, corsets optional.

The Four Stories style of literary investigation: ask the best question; win a free drink!

The media raves: The Boston Globe calls Four Stories "the city's hippest reading series," the Improper Bostonian names it the city's Best, the Boston Phoenix nominates it for the same, PEN New England honors Four Stories founder Tracy Slater with the Friends of Writers 2008 award, and the International Herald Tribune spotlights its global-trotting events!
