Awesome Literary People Hanging Out Together


What do Maya Angelou, Mark Twain, William S. Burroughs and Andy Warhol have in common?

They are some of the authors featured in photographs on the super-cool Tumblr called “Awesome People Hanging Out Together”. The site is a straightforward concept that works wonderfully well – the author finds photographs of awesome people hanging out together and posts them, ostensibly to inspire us, wow us, and make us jealous. Some of the combinations are surprising and great. Even just the Author Tagged photos provide some unusual combinations, and the whole site is definitely worth exploring.

Some of my favorite literary hangout photos below:

Helen Keller, Anne Sullivan and Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens)

Dave Chappelle and Maya Angelou

Buster Keaton and Samuel Beckett
