Litquake 2017


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

Ivy Anderson and Devon Angus, authors of the California Historical Society Book Award-winning Alice: Memoirs of a Barbary Coast Prostitute, walk and talk you through the vice districts of 20th century San Francisco, just before the closure of the infamous Barbary Coast.

Enjoy discussions of S.F. history, politics, and geography framed around the story of “Alice Smith,” a sex worker whose memoir electrified the city during its serialized publication in 1913.
