Got libations? Survival gear, including ibuprofen and rehydration tablets?
Ready. Set. Let it shake!!!!!
…900 authors from all over the San Francisco Bay Area, the U.S., and the world.
Friday marks the 15th anniversary of Litquake, the best literary festival on the Left Coast. Sell-out shows include “The Best of Craigslist,” where writers give dramatic readings of found literature culled from REAL posts on Craigslist. I’ve got tickets.
I’ll also be at “Drivel,” where some rather famous writers read some of their less-than-stellar prose.
Who could resist?
Interested in poetry? Try “A Flight of Poets” or maybe “Dark and Stormy: Contemporary Swedish Poetry.”
Adventure travel? “Into the Wilderness” or “Bicycle book tours,” depending on what your idea of adventure and travel really is.
Sci-fi? Try “Into Tomorrow.”
Something from the heart? Try “Tales of Love and Longing,” “Hot Flash Fiction,” or “Family Secrets.”
Something edgy? Try “Walk on the Wild Side.”
Need to feed you inner chef? Try “Sausages and Syrah.”
The opening night party on Friday, October 10, will be celebrated quinceañera-style. Think pink taffeta and a shot or two of tequila. Oh, and don’t forget your tiara.
On the last night, October 18, the world’s largest Lit Crawl commences, 101 events in three hours.
See you there!
