Nevada Humanities Literary Crawl

Join Nevada Humanities on Saturday, September 15, 2018 for the fifth annual Nevada Humanities Literary Crawl!


The theme this year is Open a New World, and this year’s Literary Crawl offers an exploratory afternoon and evening in Reno’s California Avenue corridor. Take in fiction, non-fiction, and poetry readings, as well as book signings and panel discussions on topics of interest to Nevadans. You won’t want to miss this year’s keynote speaker— the acclaimed writer, speaker, and storyteller Gabby Rivera.


Bring the kids too! The whole family can enjoy a scavenger hunt (with prizes) and children’s literature readings throughout the day. This Crawl is not just literature—live music, site-specific dance performances, workshops, food, art, and a whole lot more. The Nevada Humanities Literary Crawl is free and open to all. Some venues are 21+.


Open a New World guidebooks will be available on the Nevada Humanities website in advance of the Literary Crawl and printed copies will be available at Sundance Books and Music the week of the event. Guidebooks will also be available at each venue throughout the day.
