Presented in partnership with the National Book Foundation

Raise a glass and share a meal with today’s most renowned authors in this unique series of literary evenings at BAMcafé. Each event begins with a dinner featuring a seasonal menu devised by Great Performances with James Beard and local Brooklyn chefs — plus dessert, wine, and live music. Then the evening’s featured author reads from his or her work and discusses the creative process. Guests are encouraged to ask questions and have their book signed at the conclusion of the evening.
