House of SpeakEasy
Seriously Entertaining Series
The James New York supports House of SpeakEasy in seeking to raise awareness of great writing and provide the public with entertaining and exciting ways to connect with the literary arts.
SpeakEasy was established in 2013 by a group of prominent writers and literary professionals to support the art of writing in all its diverse forms. Its mission is to promote innovative ways of bringing writers and their audiences together and to raise awareness of great writing - to provide the public with entertaining and exciting ways to connect with the literary arts.
“Seriously Entertaining” is a monthly showcase of outstanding literary talent. Presented in dinner-theater style at City Winery, each SpeakEasy cabaret features a variety of writers from across the genres, from fiction to non-fiction, from the dramatic arts to stand-up comedy – with poetry and song forming a key part of the evening. Every event has a title – a central theme – that is reflected, embodied by, or otherwise meditated upon by the writers on the stage.
