Litquake is celebrating their 10th anniversary tonight with a fundraiser called, "Cocktails with Canin." Author Ethan Canin, who is currently promoting the paperback release of his epic novel, America America, which was described by the late John Updike as “a complicated, many-layered epic of class, politics, sex, death, and social history,” will be sharing cocktails and conversation onstage with former San Francisco Chronicle book editor Oscar Villalon and the audience.

The kind folks at Litquake are giving away a pair of tickets to tonight's event. Email us ([email protected]) with your full name, include "Litquake" in the subject line, and the fifth entrant wins!

CONTEST CLOSED. Congratulations, J.S.!
