San Francisco’s annual literary festival, Litquake, is this week. Friday and Saturday mark its final two days, and you can trek all over the city for readings. Some options (if you can drag yourself across the bay on Saturday after Game Day): The Art of the Short Story, Love and Death, and Misfortunes in Love and Life: A Comedy/Storytelling Event.
