The James has partnered with writer, author and humorist Joel Stein to launch a new literary program, Summer Reading@TheJames. 

Utilizing The James’ locations in Chicago, Miami, New York and upcoming Los Angeles; Joel Stein carefully curated a list of summer must reads. To complement the collection, JIMMY at The James’ master mixologist and partner Johnny Swet crafted cocktails to pair perfectly with each city’s novels and personalities. 

Stein’s own tome, Man Made: A Stupid Quest for Masculinity, will also be featured as part of the collection, along with his cocktail The Joel Stein.

*Books from all four locations are available at each James property. Books are for borrow only. If you choose to keep the book, a small fee will be applied to your final bill.
