Over 18 years ago at a bar in San Francisco, a free one-day reading series was born. Last year, it featured 850 authors, had 14,300 attendees, and held 180 events, 86% of which were free. That event is Litquake, and author, journalist, editor, screenwriter, and public speaker Jane Ganahl is its co-founder. I talked with Jane about the organization’s origins, its incredibly successful namesake festival, its year-round initiatives, and more. Recorded live on July 1, 2018.
