From Litquake's website:
As part of the festival each October, Litquake produces Kidquake. In true Litquake style, San Francisco students in grades K-5 get to sample from the work of 4 or 5 authors in an hour-long presentation and then participate in hands-on workshops with the writers they’ve just seen. Each student leaves with a new book and teachers receive a bag of books and other goodies. Sign-up forms are distributed early each fall to San Francisco schools. Kidquake at the SFPL reaches about 1,000 children each fall.
Participating authors have included: Anthony Robles, Jon Agee, Lisa Brown, Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen, Jennifer Holm, Leuyen Pham, Ina Cumpiano, and many more!
