Scene from Lit Crawl at Laszlo's Bar, 2012.

Fiction, non-fiction, poetry—Lit Crawl has it all. For this year’s literary feast, writers, artists and locals will be crowding all corners of the Mission; from the Elbo Room to a beekeeping supply store.

Lit Crawl is hosted annually as part of Lit Quake, a literary festival created to celebrate San Francisco’s talented writers, as well as the city’s book-loving residents. It runs from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. tonight. Over 500 writers will be performing at 83 events packed into a few square blocks of the Mission as part of this year’s citywide literary romp.

Since attending all of the events will be impossible, Mission Local will be spreading out reporters and covering the events live. So for all of those torn between attending Friends of Groucho or Living la Palabra Loca (both readings set for phase two), don’t fret, just click on over to our Lit Crawl live blogging page.

The Lit Crawl map provides a full listing of the readings.

As an arts reporter, Gibson, 28, hopes to highlight under-reported Latin cultural events and their role in the larger contemporary art scene.
