San Francisco’s Literary Festival, Litquake will take place from October 7th - 15th, 2011. The festival will showcase 500 authors participating in over 100 events - ranging from performances to panels and many more in between.
Litquake will add and deepen many of its fault lines in 2011 by expanding its reach outside the pool of Bay Area talent and securing the Litquake debut of authors from Scandinavia and Ireland, as well as a host of national names, including Jeffrey Eugenides, Susan Orlean, Thomas McGuane, Deepak Chopra and a host of other names who will appear for the first time.
There are 67 events scheduled for the main portion of the festival compared to 56 in 2010, and approx 75 venues for the Lit Crawl, compared to last year’s 65. Since being founding in 1999, the festival has presented more than 2800 author
appearances for an audience of over 67,000. Litquake is now the largest literary festival west of the Mississippi.
