PBS Arts: Litquake 2012: KQED's The Writers' Block Event

The Writers BlockAs part of the PBS Arts Fall Festival, selected events in the San Francisco Bay Area are being highlighted. The largest independent literary festival on the West Coast, Litquake is a nine-day literary spectacle for booklovers, complete with cutting-edge panel discussions, unique cross-media events, and hundreds of readings. For more information on PBS Arts, go to pbs.org/arts

One of the featured events is the Lit Crawl, which was created by the Litquake literary festival back in 2004, and the idea was simple: transform an ordinary bar crawl into a mob scene of literary mayhem. Could it take over a neighborhood, or two, add pop-up events to every venue that might allow it, invite dozens of authors to read from their work, and watch hundreds of literati tromp the route and get drunk on words -- all for free? Judging by the past couple of years, the answer is a resounding yes! Join KQED's The Writers' Block for 'News Kids on the Block,' a night featuring five young writers as fresh as your favorite '80s boy band, from 7:15 to 8:15pm on October 13, 2012 at Bruno's in SF's Mission district. Check the Litquake site at litquake.org for details. Also, find out more about The Writers' Block.
