Lit Crawl National 2015

Where literature hits the streets

What started as an experiment in San Francisco, has since become one of the most anticipated literary nights of the year — in nine cities and counting!  

A pub crawl, with literature, the Lit Crawl brings literature to the streets, featuring smart and silly, worldly and wacky events in venues usual (bars, cafes, galleries, and bookstores) and unusual (police stations, tattoo parlors, barbershops, and cemeteries).

(check out this oral history of Lit Crawl on here on Literary Hub.)

By partnering with a variety of organizations, each Lit Crawl bolsters the local literary scene and captures its city’s unique flavor — all while getting book lovers and revelers alike drunk on words.

For free.

Lit Crawls now take place in San Francisco, New York, Austin, Seattle, Iowa City, Los Angeles, London, Helsinki, and Portland, with more cities in the works.
