This year, the Bay Area’s annual book festival, Litquake, celebrates its 20th anniversary. Litquake began in 1999 as a day-long event and has since grown to be the largest independent literary festival on the West Coast, composed of 200 events, 700 authors, and drawing over 21,000 attendees. To commemorate this special occasion, Stanford Litquake will bring to the stage five extraordinary writers currently teaching at Stanford who will read from their most recent works: Samina Ali (Madras on Rainy Days), Tom Kealey (Thieves I’ve Known), Charif Shanahan (Into Each Room We Enter without Knowing), Austin Smith (Flyover Country), and Lynn Stegner (For All the Obvious Reasons). They are some of the finest, most exciting authors writing fiction and poetry today. For both aspiring writers and book lovers alike, this thought-provoking evening promises to delight, transport, and inspire.
The program will be hosted by Sara Houghteling, author and former Nancy Packer Lecturer in Continuing Studies.
