House of SpeakEasy Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was founded in 2013 by the biographer Amanda Foreman and editor Lucas Wittmann. SpeakEasy is dedicated to the idea that literature matters, and that the essence of literary culture is the relationship between writers and their readers. To foster that relationship, the Foundation seeks to: 1) Bring authors out from behind the book into direct contact with audiences; 2) Ensure that writers are compensated for their work and their time; 3) Stimulate the students, audiences, and writers of tomorrow by exposing them to the best writing of today.
