Shortly before the 28th anniversary of the Loma Prieta Earthquake — Oct. 17, by the way — a different type of “quake” will hit the city: Litquake, San Francisco’s annual literary festival, takes place at various locations across the city from Oct. 6 to Oct. 14.
   
During its 8-day run, bookworms can take part in a number of seminars, talks, walks, lunches and tours. Activities on the schedule for 2017 include: Heroes: A Night of Stories with Porchlight, where storytellers tell hero-themed tales; Art of the YA Novel, where novelist Malena Watrous moderates a panel of young adult authors; and Longform Fiction from Europe, which includes readings and discussions from Europe’s top novelists currently on book tours.
   
While the festival is packed and crammed with events, it is most famous for its closing night activity, the Lit Crawl. During the crawl, literature enthusiasts travel to multiple bars, galleries, cafes and bookstores over the course of three hours to drink, eat and hear stories from multiple writers.
