Litquake 2017

Litquake

San Francisco’s legendary annual Litquake festival features hundreds of authors, poets and journalists in a myriad of separate events throughout the Bay Area.

It’s all meant to foster interest in literature for people of all ages, perpetuate a sense of literary community, and provide a vibrant forum for Bay Area writing.

Litquake 2017

This brown bag lunch features Mallory Ortberg (The Toast, Texts From Jane Eyre), speaking on the continued popularity and relevance of Charlotte Brontë’s classic Gothic-Victorian novel. First published in 1847 under the byline “Currer Bell,” Jane Eyre revolutionized the art of fiction, and although criticized as anti-Christian, was eventually praised for its fearless exploration of the themes of classism, sexuality, religion, and feminism.
