Held in three 45-minute rounds, this progressive literary night is a chance to dine, explore, and stroll while enjoying readings and performances!

San Francisco’s Litquake literary festival runs every October with affiliated Lit Crawls in San Francisco, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Austin, Iowa City, Seattle, London, Helsinki, Portland, Chicago, Denver and Cheltenham.
