For the last 22 years Litquake has brought the West Coast’s largest independent literary festival to San Francisco. Over the course of our history, we have served close to 220,000 audience members and over 10,000 authors. Litquake’s diverse programs are created with the aim of inspiring critical engagement with the key issues of the day, bringing people together around the common humanity encapsulated in literature, and perpetuating a sense of literary community, as well as a vibrant forum for Bay Area writing. We believe in literature as a public good, and produce events accessible to all.
Our 2021 festival returns October 7-23. Sign up for our newsletter at litquake.org.
