Litquake 2019: San Francisco’s 10-Day Literature Festival

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.

They came by the thousands, escaping war and poverty in southern China to seek their fortunes working to build the Transcontinental Railroad. These migrants spent years dynamiting tunnels through the snow-packed cliffs of the Sierra Nevada and laying tracks across the burning Utah desert, helping fuel the ascent of an interlinked, industrial United States. But survivors were pushed first to the margins of American life, and then to the fringes of public memory.

Award-winning scholar Gordon H. Chang discusses his groundbreaking book Ghosts of Gold Mountain.
