Lattes for Litquake

If you’re reading this, you’re a fan of Litquake. You love Litquake’s 19-year-old diverse and cutting-edge programming. You love that our events are free or low-cost. You love that for ten glorious days in October, Litquake treats Bay Area audiences to hundreds of events featuring over 850 authors.

Is that kind of literary experience worth the price of a few lattes a month?

Please join Lattes for Litquake, Litquake’s monthly giving program, and spread the joy of reading and writing to others and keep our nonprofit festival running strong.

Your gift will:

  • Help Litquake produce 225 events per year, most of them low-cost or free
  • Give the gift of Kidquake to close to 1,000 schoolchildren, where they meet authors, learn writing skills, and receive free books
  • Bring our Elder Project’s eight-week writing classes to low-income seniors in residential facilities
  • Aid Teenquake and its young writers in exploring their creative writing and public speaking abilities
  • Keep our closing night Lit Crawl (the world’s largest) 100% free to the public
  • Provide both well-known authors and emerging voices access to diverse audiences

We need your support! Most of our fans don’t realize that while 18,000 people attend Litquake events every year, only 2% make meaningful donations.

  • $10/month Latte
  • $15/month Soy latte with cinnamon
  • $25/month Vanilla no-foam latte with whip
  • $50/month Matcha caramel latte with an extra shot

Beyond the intangible benefits of spreading the joy of literature, you will receive:

  • Advance notice and ticket access for festival programs
  • Name recognition as a Lattes for Litquake donor
  • Coupon for a free coffee drink
  • Invite to Litquake festival’s exclusive opening night party atop Nob Hill (for members who donate $25/month or more)
