Join The Chronicle's Datebook staff at Lit Crawl on Saturday, Oct. 20 at The Chapel for a lively and good-humored roast of The Chronicle's iconic rating system, The Little Man. Learn about The Little Man, such as where did he come from, how long he's been around and more. Hear from staff members as they share their biggest grievances and frustrations with a man of such small stature.

One of the most anticipated literary nights of the year, San Francisco's Lit Crawl is a massive, one-night literary pub crawl throughout the city's Mission District. Lit Crawl SF brings together 500+ authors and close to 10,000 fans for the world's largest FREE pop-up literary event. 

The San Francisco Chronicle is a proud sponsor of Litquake.

Attendance is free!! Come for the cocktails, stick around for the roast. There will surely be a lively debate about why there isn't a Little Woman!
