Read. Write. Resist.

A San Francisco reading series.


Noah Sanders

Noah Sanders is a writer in San Francisco.

He started The Racket in 2017 on a whim.

The Racket has slowly grown into a fairly popular place for both local readers to come and share their work, and for fans of good writing to come and hear it.

He has a dog named Arlo who looks like a teddy bear but acts like a 65-pound cat.
