On stage. In Schools. On the Road. House of SpeakEasy celebrates six years of connecting writers and audiences, sharing the transformative power of storytelling. From Seriously Entertaining shows to our SpeakTogether work in classrooms to driving our mobile book truck to book deserts around the country, we’ve been busy! Catch up on everything we’ve been doing in this short video produced on the occasion of Speakeasy’s sixth anniversary.

House of SpeakEasy is going on a 4,000-mile road trip this summer! From Brooklyn to New Orleans, and back again, we are hitting the road to bring books & poetry to over 16 cities in two weeks. The "Poetry to the People" tour, in partnership with Narrative 4, will be offering workshops and readings on the way down, while Speakeasy will be coordinating book giveaways, educational programs, and Seriously Entertaining performances on the way back.

June 18 | 7:00 pm | The Song Sings Itself

 

On June 18th, House of SpeakEasy’s literary cabaret “Seriously Entertaining” will feature activist and journalist Michael Bronski, Emmy Award–winning journalist and creator of The New York Times Sunday Review Trish Hall, novelist and screenwriter John Burnham Schwartz, and memoirist and novelist Darcey Steinke as they each explore the evening’s theme, “The Song Sings Itself.”
