Litquake San Francisco: Your Ultimate Guide To Navigating Literary Takeover (PHOTOS)

  First Posted: 10/06/11 05:54 PM ET   Updated: 12/06/11 05:12 AM ET

With nine days, more than 80 events and dozens of venues, navigating the Litquake schedule can feel a bit like perusing The Complete Novels of Leo Tolstoy. Stars like Chelsea Handler and Jeffrey Eugenides will surely bring the masses, but what about the litany of indie readings? Should you feign a doctor's appointment to catch one of the 3 o'clocks? Splurge on the ticketed events? Don't fret: HuffPost has got you covered. While we wholeheartedly suggest making a week of it, here are our editors' event picks if you can only make one or two. Or six.

Check out our picks in the slideshow below:

If John Cusack's character in High Fidelity is the poster boy for pop culture-obsessed, hyper-intellectual music nerds, Chuck Klosterman is their poet laureate. Over the course of two novels and five essay collections, Klosterman has poked and prodded the soft underbelly of American culture with his trademark arch wit. The Visible Man, his newly released second novel, chronicles a the relationship between a therapist and a patient who believes himself to be invisible. Litquake in the Bookstore: Chuck Klosterman, October 11, 7:30pm. - Aaron Sankin
