Authors Get Politically Active

San Francisco author Stephen Elliot announced Monday the creation of LitPac, a political action committee that aims to involve authors more in the political process. Modeled on his Progressive Reading series, LitPac will host author readings around the country in New York, Portland, Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, Houston and Washington D.C. The money raised will be donated to progressive candidates around the country.

Elliott is the director of the group and the board of advisors includes Tobias Wolff, Daniel Handler, Aimee Bender, Rick Moody, and David Poindexter, the founder and publisher of MacAdam/Cage (via Maud Newton)
