On Saturday, October 17th from 6pm -9:30pm San Francisco’s 10th annual Litquake will conclude with the most anticipated literary event of the year: Litcrawl.
Fourteen Hills wouldn’t miss it and we hope you feel the same!
During Litcrawl, for three and a half hours only, San Francisco’s Mission District will be host to dozens of writers represented by almost every major literary organization in the Bay Area. The writers and audience will be stuffed into bars, galleries, restaurants, coffee shops, and bookstores; and the readings and spoken word performances will happen more or less simultaneously. To add to the joy (and general chaos), this year’s Litcrawl will also be attended by over 20 street food vendors so you can get your gastronomical stimulation at the same time as your literary stimulation.
To provide some loose structure to the melee and to keep the crowds moving, Litcrawl has been arranged into three phases:
Fourteen Hills will be given a reading with Eleven Eleven during Phase 2 at the City Art Gallery at 828 Valencia St.
