Janis Cooke Newman describes San Francisco’s Litquake festival, scheduled this year for October 7-15.

This year, Litquake’s 12th, the event will stretch over nine days and feature 848 authors reading in venues as diverse as Sausalito houseboats, Mission District dive bars, a police station, an alley and a cheese shop, as well as the usual bookstores and theaters. Best of all, most of these events are free or close to it. Which means that if you are a lover of the written word, Oct. 7-15 is the best time to be in San Francisco.
