13th Annual Lit Crawl SF: The Republic of Sin / The Escapery
Saturday, October 14 @ 6:30PM

Readings, live music accompaniment, and vivid projected images will recreate an episode of “The Republic of Sin” podcast, the story of a lost English-speaking colony of pirates, spies, and mercenaries on the legendary Coast of Sin, a tropical paradise full of dark secrets. After the intermission, writers will explore the ebullient linguistic space of animals, stories, and translation.

6:30 – 7:30pm (Phase 2): The Republic of Sin
8:00 – 9:00pm (Phase 3): The Escapery

The 13th annual Lit Crawl will span over three hours in San Francisco’s Mission District, featuring 99 events and over 400 performers. From fiction to nonfiction and poetry to comedy, these events will take place in bookstores, bars, galleries, restaurants, stores, cafés, and community spaces.

One of the most anticipated literary nights of the year, San Francisco’s Lit Crawl attracts close to 10,000 people, and is the world’s largest such event. In 2008, Lit Crawl NYC launched in Manhattan, also an immediate hit. Austin was next, swarming for the first time in 2011. In 2012, two more Lit Crawls were born, one in Brooklyn, another in Seattle. In 2013, the event expanded to Los Angeles, Iowa City, and London, and in 2014, Lit Crawls were launched in Miami and Helsinki.
