Literary Speakeasy is a monthly literary show at Martuni’s piano bar. The show, which has been going strong for over eight years, is held on the last Thursday of every month at 7PM and showcases the best Bay Area writers, poets, and songwriters. Literary Speakeasy is hosted and curated each month by San Francisco-based poet James J. Siegel.
“Queens Read Celebrity Autobiographies” got its start at
Martuni’s, but soon outgrew the space due to standing-room only audiences. The show soon moved to Oasis nightclub.
Since 1999 Litquake has hosted 10,500 authors for 275,000 attendees and distributed 12,000 free books to San Francisco schoolchildren. With over 225 literary partners, Litquake functions more than ever as an umbrella organization stitching together the Bay Area’s literary scene. In its lively, diverse and inclusive celebration of San Francisco’s thriving contemporary literary scene, Litquake seeks to foster an interest in literature, perpetuate a sense of literary community, and provides a forum for Bay Area writing as a complement to the city’s music, film, and cultural festivals.
