Litquake 2020: 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.

Rising from the ashes of the mysterious and legendary Suicide Club, the Cacophony Society eventually hosted chapters in over a dozen major cities. Its strange and often bizarre style of public creativity influenced and inspired everything from Urban Exploration and Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club to SantaCon, and yes, Burning Man.

A new revised edition of Tales of the San Francisco Cacophony Society (Last Gasp) tells the history and offers a template for pranksters, artists, adventurers and anyone interested in rampant creativity. Author and Cacophony member John Law, interviewed by V. Vale.
