About BookLab


OUR GOAL:  The goal of BookLab is to promote local writers, inspire budding writers, explore the inner workings of our relationship with literature and knowledge, and create a literary community of individuals with a passion for the written word and the Boston literary scene.


OUR SCHEDULE:  Informal gatherings are held monthly, usually on the third Thursday 6:30 – 8:00 PM, currently alternating between South End and Jamaica Plain residences. Light refreshments are provided.


OUR PROGRAMMING:  Events include conversation with the author, a reading from the current book and often a discussion  of the writing process, research, author experiences, inspiration, mentors, etc.  Presenters include novelists, bloggers, poets, essayists, memoirists,  biographers, and any other genre our authors are writing.

  • Authors may be published or unpublished, may present finished work, or work in progress (but this is not a workshop)
  • Authors with published work have the opportunity to offer books for sale at the gathering.
  • This is not a book club and it is not necessary to read the books prior to the BookLab event.


Other types of programming are also in the works.
