9 Days of Litquake Begin Tomorrow

A third signature event hits San Francisco this weekend. As if Fleet Week and the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass music festival aren’t enough, Litquake kicks off on Friday as well!

Litquake is huge, but kind of hard to describe. Here’s how organizers put it:

Whether it’s poets reciting in a cathedral, authors discussing science versus religion in a library, or novelists reading in a beekeeping supply store, the goal remains the same: whet a broad range of literary appetites, present the literary fare in a variety of traditional and unlikely venues, and make it vivid, real, and entertaining.

Now grown to the largest independent literary festival on the West Coast, Litquake continues its mission as a nine-day literary spectacle for booklovers, complete with cutting-edge panel discussions, unique cross-media events, and hundreds of readings.

Hundreds of authors, poets, and journalists will be featured in a myriad of separate events. Many of these events are free, and many others are $5-$10. To lean more visit the Litquake website, or check out their Facebook page by clicking here.
