Author Mary Roach and Mythbusters' Adam Savage Dish Space Travel

Mary Roach is a local legend—you'll likely remember titles like Stiff, Spook, and Bonk. She makes science a hoot, no more so than in her latest Packing for Mars. As part of the SF Public Library's One City One Book program (this year's book is Packing for Mars, of course), Roach's scientific findings will be challenged by none other than the Discovery Channel's Mythbusters' Adam Savage.

Tonight at Litquake: Tuesday, October 13

It was a dark and stormy day in San Francisco, and weather that is, undeniably, frightful might keep even the most dedicated Litquake fans from their appointed rounds. If you can round up a pair of rain boots and a sturdy umbrella, though, tonight is full of great events that will keep your brain buzzing and your toes toasty.
