Attention All Berkeley Residents:
Seismologists are reporting a magnitude 9.0 Litquake that will hit the Bay Area on Oct. 5 and continue to rock our world all the way until Oct. 13. The experts are recommending that we evacuate our houses and hit the more 163 (mostly free) events that feature over 850 authors. Here are some of the highlights of the San Francisco literary crawl:
The Fantastic Surrounds Us — Exploring everything in the worlds of science fiction and fantasy, this event is number one on the itinerary for any Berkeley nerd.
Sex on the Beach: Bawdy Storytelling at the Park Chalet — If you enjoy sex, then you will enjoy this hilarious evening of storytelling.
J.R. Moehringer: Sutton — Don’t even consider missing this once in a lifetime opportunity. This guy can write. Just ask his Pulitzer.
Pints, Poetry, and Prose — Even if you can’t drink, this event is likely to send you into a poem filled haze of imagery and rhythm. Go to relax, stay to learn.
