The council receives funding from the state legislature to assist nonprofit organizations in creating programs that promote the arts, science and humanities within  communities. The project for the literary district is led by Grub Street, an independent writing center.

In terms of its location, the district will stretch across Copley Square and the downtown area, with the Boston Public Library and the Boston Athenaeum, one of the oldest independent libraries in the US, serving as its anchors.

A nationwide poll of 1,000, conducted by the Huffington Post last month found that 28 percent of Americans did not read a physical or electronic book last year. A further 25 percent only read one to five books.

“We don’t only want to target people of a certain demographic who already love books,” Bridburg said. “We want to keep it young and relevant. We’re a college town, it only makes sense in the end.”

Technology will be an element of the experience, with smartphone apps designed to feature self-guided tours, based on one’s literary interests. In addition, the district will embrace the world of e-books.

In the end, Bridburg said she wants the cultural district to serve as a platform from which Bostonians can increase their literary engagement.

“The idea is that this is a way to increase participation in the literary arts in the city, and also increase civic pride and awareness,” Bridburg said. “We want everyone involved; we want school children, teenagers, adults, everyone.”
