Signed books by some of the past year’s acclaimed authors.
During a year in which we all craved community, SpeakEasy was thrilled to feature an array of literary talents on its stage at Joe’s Pub and via livestream. These writers came through when we needed them most, uniting us with a shared appreciation for the written word, relating personal stories on a range of themes, from “Feast Your Eyes” to “All in Good Time” to “Those Were the Days.” We are indebted to them for helping us stay connected, inspired, and, most of all, entertained.
Five of the authors we featured in 2020 have generously agreed to sign a small number of their books. We are offering our community the chance to get the book of your choice sent for a limited time only.
Make a tax-deductible donation in support of House of SpeakEasy’s nonprofit mission by selecting one of the titles below, and we’ll throw in a free SpeakEasy tote bag as a special thank you.
