BECOME A MEMBER

“I have been an ardent member of SpeakEasy ever since it began. I look forward to every show, and they are always interesting and thought-provoking. The speakers often move me to tears with their performances, which are as diverse as they are fascinating.”
— Griff Fairbairn, Sustaining Member since 2014

House of SpeakEasy wants to be your house, the place where you connect with the literary arts and help others to do the same. Since March 2020, we have been delivering our shows and school programs to your homes and the homes of students participating in our outreach initiatives virtually for free. As a result, we have expanded our community nationally, deepening our nonprofit mission of connecting writers and readers. We look forward to returning to in-person programs soon. In the meantime, we are excited to offer a new membership level, “Virtual Member,” and you are cordially invited to join our community of supporters in 2021.

Join Today!

Become a member and you will receive perks like complimentary access to all shows, premium content, special invitations, signed books, free totes, and more. As a SpeakEasy member, your contribution is even more vital today. Membership fees make it possible for us to connect authors around the country to under-resourced high schools (now virtually!) and ensure that they receive free copies of authors’ books. With new digital platforms at our disposal, we are also building bridges to communities around the country where literary programs are in short supply. All the while, The SpeakEasy Bookmobile has been able to deliver books and school supplies to areas hardest hit by the pandemic, safely and responsibly.

About Seriously Involved

House of SpeakEasy is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that celebrates the transformative power of literature. Seriously Involved is SpeakEasy’s outreach initiative serving students and readers in underserved communities. We send writers into high schools and after-school programs in Brooklyn, The Bronx, and East Harlem to work with students on their writing, public speaking, and critical thinking skills to help level the playing field for those hoping to go onto college. The SpeakEasy Bookmobile delivers books to readers in areas where bookstores are in short supply in New York City and across the country. Please consider supporting these initiatives by making a donation to the SpeakEasy Foundation.

All donations and membership fees are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowable.
