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.

Salon magazine founder David Talbot is not only a bestselling author of books like Season of the Witch and The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA and the Rise of America’s Secret Government; he’s also a great defender of San Francisco in all its glories and disappointments.

Talbot offers his takes on The City’s literary and political scenes, as well as his son Joe’s acclaimed debut film, The Last Black Man in San Francisco, and a sneak preview of his forthcoming memoir, Between Heaven and Hell: The Story of My Stroke. In conversation with Denise Sullivan.
