Â Â I'll be reading in the "Around the World in 60 Minutes" hour, taking place from 12pm to 1pm
on Saturday, October 4th (I think I must be representing Germany!)
Readers that hour will include:
Â Â Nguyen Do
Â Malena Watrous
Â Siddharth Shanghvi
Â Niloufar Talebi
Â Â ZoÃ« Ferraris
Â Saikat Majumdar
Â Erika Mailman
Takes place at the Koret Auditorium, San Francisco Main Public Library,
100 Larkin Street (BART station is Civic Center). This is always a really fun way to
hear snippets--great for our short attention spans. I've been directed to read for
exactly six minutes. This is my third year with Litquake (fourth?) and it's always funny
to watch people go over their time and have someone in the front row waving furiously
at them to stop. They need an orchestra like the Oscars!
The readings continue in hour-long segments all day.
After the reading, Books Inc. Opera Plaza store (3 blocks from the Main Library) will
host an author book signing and reception for Koret readers immediately following the
final hour, starting at 5:30pm.
