2015 Beast Crawl: Huge East Bay Literature Pub Crawl
Saturday, July 11, 2015 | 5-9 pm
Uptown Oakland

Each leg of the Beast lasts one hour, and offers as many as a dozen readings to chose from. There’s a half hour break between literary legs for socializing and relocating to a new venue before the next reading begins. They recommend choosing one reading per leg. You can even plan your route in advance. Crawl maps listing all the venues, curators, legs, and after-party locations will be available online and at all the Leg 1 events.

To curate these literary events for Beast Crawl, they invite a diverse collection of local reading series producers and literary rock stars including Tourettes Without Regrets, Quiet Lightning, Berkeley Poetry Slam, Lip Service West and many more.

Check out the lineups for each leg:
