San Francisco plays host to visiting authors of all stripes, not to mention a bevy of homegrown literary talent. In celebration of that, we're introducing a new weekly roundup of the best literary events in the city. All events are free and open to the public, unless otherwise noted. Want to submit an upcoming event for consideration? Go here.
Writers with Drinks
Saturday, July 9th, 7:30-9:30 pm, at Make-Out Room (3225 22nd St.)
This monthly event brings together a diverse group of writers (including a number of out-of-towners) to read short excerpts of their work. Featured readers for the July edition include Los Angeles-based Charles Yu, poet/novelist Jesse Ball, retro career-advice guru Lynn Peril, and novelist Anna North (more on several of these authors below). Admission is a $5-10 sliding scale, and true to the event's name, drinks are available at the bar.
