“There is no other literary festival in the country like Litquake. It is all about community, connecting readers to writers and connecting writers to each other. Homegrown and innovative, it is a jewel, reminding us how strong and how essential the arts are.” —T.J. Stiles, author and two-time Pulitzer recipient
