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.

The 2019 LitCrawl will span over three hours in the Mission District’s Valencia Street corridor, featuring dozens of literary readings and events, including poetry, fiction, nonfiction, comedy and more, in bookstores, bars, galleries, restaurants, stores, cafés, community spaces, a bookmobile, a vibrator store, and a police station.

One of the most anticipated literary nights of the year, San Francisco’s Lit Crawl brings together 500+ authors and close to 10,000 fans for the world’s largest free pop-up literary event.
