This week (okay a week and 2 days) the Bay area presents Litquake. Originally a one-day reading series in Golden Gate park, Litquake has expanded enormously to last 9 days and even travel west to east. That’s right, this year Litquake will also be holding events in Berkeley.

The event is “Stories on Stage” at Berkeley’s Rep’s Roda Theater where actors will be performing short fiction by Bay Area literary big names. They are even reading a Daniel Handler aka Lemony Snicket piece.

Just a BART ride away in San Francisco are many other cool events. On Oct. 3rd there will be a North Beach Literary Walking tour as well as “Lit Flicks: Litquakes Literary Film Festival.” They even have an event where songs that incorporate famous words from books are being performed.

Browse the events here. With so many the festival makes it possible for us literary buffs to attend at least one. Comments describing the best events from past years are appreciated.
