Coming Soon to Your Literary Festival

Litquake XVI looms on the horizon Oct. 9-17, and we want to give you, our family of supporters, a couple of news flashes! As always, we feature some perennial favorite events like Porchlight, Flight of Poets, Women's Night, and more. But we also continue to expand the boundaries of literary and cultural conversations by delving into topical issues. We just inked two special events - both on Tuesday, Oct. 13 - that we think you'll find fascinating: one that commemorates the Armenian Genocide with actor/activist/author Eric Bogosian (Operation Nemesis: The Assassination Plot that Avenged the Armenian Genocide) and one that raises the timely issue of animal rights and welfare with Tracey Stewart, the author of the October release Do Unto Animals: A Friendly Guide to How Animals Live, and How We Can Make Their Lives Better and a vegan who lives with her soon-to-retire husband Jon Stewart on an animal sanctuary. Tickets go on sale this September, so stay tuned!

Best-selling Author Josh Mohr

The best-selling author of five novels returns to next month's Epicenter, Joshua Mohr in Conversation with Jack Boulware, for the Bay Area launch of his newest novel, All This Life. Mohr's latest novel is an irreverent, humorous, and thoughtful narrative of a shocking event that occurs during rush hour on the Golden Gate Bridge. Author of Damascus, which The New York Times called "Beat-poet cool," as well as Fight Song, Some Things that Meant the World to Me, and Termite Parade, Mohr will be in conversation with Jack Boulware, co-founder of Litquake and author/co-author of three nonfiction books, including the Bay Area punk history, Gimme Something Better. Followed by audience Q&A, book sales, and signing. Grab your seat! Tuesday, July 14, 7 pm, Viracocha, 998 Valencia St., $10-20 suggested donation.
