4 Great Ways to Feel Literary This Week

Happy Litquake, everyone! If you can manage to drag yourself away from reading Infinite Jest for the grillionth time, venture out into the madness of Litquake, SF's largest literary festival! Here are five great ways to get your lit-nerd on:

1. "Christopher Moore in Collision: Whales, Comedy, and The Impressionists", Monday, 6 PM, Z Space--As a child, I was first exposed to Christopher Moore when my much-older cousin presented me with his highly irreverent The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal. Needless to say, I was hooked. Get science from a hilarious perspective by sitting in on a conversation between Christopher Moore and his longtime pal Flip Nicklin.

2. "Teenquake: Not Your Mother’s Book Club", Monday, 7 PM, Books Inc. Opera Space--If all you think YA is these days consists of the words "Edward Cullen" and/or "Harry Potter," you've got a lot to learn. Let this quartet of awesome authors teach you a thing or two about where YA lit is heading.

3. "10 Years Later: A Granta Conversation," Tuesday, 7 PM, The Book Club of California--Granta has been putting out gripping, quality issues for years. Join four great contributors for a discussion of how America has changed in the ten years since 9/11.

4. "Chuck Klosterman at the Booksmith", Tuesday, 7:30 PM, The Booksmith--What do sex, drugs, and cocoa puffs all have in common? Well, aside from being arguably delicious, they're a few of Chuck Klosterman's favorite things to discuss. Be prepared to laugh your Gaga off at his nerdy observations on life as we know it.
