My name is Daniel Thurber, I am a New York City-based history writer and video-maker. I started Bookworm History in 2013 as a YouTube channel to have an outlet for my ramblings about the fascinating stories behind great works of literature. Since then it evolved into what you see here, a celebration of all the weird, wild, and wonderful that history has to offer!
This site is also home to the show “City Full of History”, featuring unappreciated, unsung, yet fascinating stories New York City has to offer!
So take a stroll through some of the articles, watch some videos, listen to a podcast. I hope you find something that interests you! If you do, please let me know in the comments! If you’d like to know more about a topic, or have something you’d like to see featured here, leave that in the comments as well. Don’t forget to follow this blog and subscribe to the YouTube channel so you stay up-to-date on all the latest BH content!
Thanks for stopping by!
