Why There Are Words

Litquake 2010

Why There Are Words Presents will be part of Litquake’s legendary Litcrawl.

Over 300 authors appearing in three hours through the heart of the Mission District? And all for free? How is that even possible? Yes, yes again, and we’re not sure how but we don’t really question it. The annual closing night Crawl returns to S.F. on Saturday, October 9.

We’ll be at the Artzone 461 Gallery at 461 Valencia St. from 6-7 PM with this fabulous line-up:

Tom Barbash is the author of the novel The Last Good Chance, and the New York Times bestselling nonfiction book, On Top of the World.

Author of three story collections and Story Logic and the Craft of Fiction, Catherine Brady teaches in the MFA Program at University of San Francisco.

Alice LaPlante teaches at San Francisco State University and Stanford University. Her latest book, Turn of Mind, will be published by Grove Atlantic in 2011.

Li Miao Lovett‘s forthcoming novel, In the Lap of the Gods, is a tale of love, loss and rebellion against China’s Three Gorges dam.

Valerie Miner is the author of 13 books including After  Eden, Abundant Light, and The Low Road. She is an artist-in-residence and professor at Stanford.

Jason Roberts is the author of the prize-winning book, A Sense of the World: How a Blind Man Became History’s Greatest Traveler.

*Bonus: WTAW’s curator/host Peg Alford Pursell will read from her work at Litcrawl, along with fellow alums from The Warren Wilson MFA Program for Writers, immediately after: 7:15, at Bianca Starr at 3552 20th Street. (You can walk over with her!)
