House of SpeakEasy’s 2019 Gala fundraiser will be held on Thursday, February 28th at

The Edison Ballroom, in New York City


The theme for this evening of performances and conversation is

“The Games People Play”


All proceeds from the evening’s event will go to support House of SpeakEasy Foundation’s nonprofit mission to connect writers and audiences through our outreach programs in area high schools and communities, and with our bookmobile that brings books to areas of New York City where bookstores, libraries, and literary programs are in short supply.

Below is a slideshow from SpeakEasy’s 2018 Gala, “Once More with Feeling,”

Hosted by Faith Salie and featuring Ron Chernow, Postell Pringle, and Francine Prose
