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.
