Bookmark to Host Beast Crawl Literary Festival July 22

The Bookmark will be host to two events for the Beast Crawl Literary Festival on Saturday, July 22 between 4:00pm – 6:30pm.

This annual literary festival showcases the diversity and talent of writers with deep roots in the East Bay. ("East Bay" is pig latin for BEAST.) The program features four “legs” of 10 simultaneous readings/performances across Oakland, followed by a big after party.

The Bookmark will host performances by a number of talented writers and poets from Milvia Street Journal, the literary magazine of Berkeley City College, from 4:00-5:00pm, followed by the Colossus Press from 5:30-6:30pm.

All are welcome to join us for what is sure to be an inspiring evening celebrating local literature and the power of the spoken word. Visit to learn more about the festival and all the day’s performances.
