More than 100 writers will read from their work Saturday night, over three hours and across several venues. Imagine a pub crawl, but with participants soaking up stories and poetry instead. And it’s all free.
The third annual Beast Crawl festival – the name derives from the giant cranes at the port — has four literary legs, the first three featuring literary stars. The first leg begins at 5 p.m. The final leg, which runs from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., features two after-parties: a family-friendly one and a boozy one.
To pick up a map and plan a literary route, find the information table parked outside of The Legionnaire Saloon at 2272 Telegraph Ave., Oakland. For more, visit www.beastcrawl.weebly.com.
