The Tannery Series is an arts organization that presents serious literature in a manner that makes it fresh, accessible and fun. Founded five years ago by writers Dawne Shand and Kirun Kapur, the series has focused on bringing authors to the Boston Area whose writing confronts the world in essential and curious ways.

Known for its smart, innovative literary programming, the Series has featured writers ranging from  Paul Harding to Sharon Olds to Major Jackson in such memorable events as “Love, Lust and Loathing” and “Race In Your Face”. In 2013, The Tannery Series began collaborating with the Peabody Essex Museum to provide literary programs for the museum’s evening party series PEM/PM.
