Litquake: San Francisco's Literary Festival 2012

5-13 October 2012

Litquake is San Francisco's nine-day literary festival for booklovers, complete with cutting-edge panel discussions, unique cross-media events, and hundreds of readings. Litquake's Lit Cast is our selection of the best-of in writerly conversations and readings from throughout the year, many of them recorded at the "Epicenter", a monthly Litquake series which embraces a theater of ideas between writers and readers.

Litquake co-founders, Jack Boulware and Jane Ganahl, act as hosts of Lit Cast and banter freely about the history of famous venues in San Francisco or tell personal anecdotes from their experiences with writers like Hunter S. Thompson, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and so forth. Adam Johnson, Peter Carey, Geoff Dyer, Carolyn Burke, and Alice LaPlante are all currently featured in conversation with other artists or reading from current works. Irvine Welsh, Steve Erickson, Nathan Larson, Joshua Cohen and others to come soon. Many events from this year’s festival, 5-13 October, will also be live-streamed or recorded and published later.
