Growing Up: Don’t Miss These Readings at the City’s Biggest Literary Bacchanal

SF Weekly, 10/7/2014

Fifteen years ago, Litquake was just a twinkle in the eye of local writers Jane Ganahl and Jack Boulware. But what once was a single-day reading series in Golden Gate Park with just 22 authors has blossomed into a sprawling festival of writing, drinking, and drunken writers. Litquake has come of age, and like many a native San Franciscan, it’s planning to celebrate with a quinceañera party. With tiaras, poofy dresses (one hopes!), a mariachi band, and free tequila, the opening night party — Oct. 10 at Z Space — will kick off nine days of readings and events featuring more than 800 writers.
