Presented in Partnership with the National Book Foundation

The series for readers, writers, and diners, Eat, Drink & Be Literary brings discourse and insight to the table, creating a shared experience between friends, strangers, and today’s foremost authors in the comfort of BAMcafé. Presented in partnership with the National Book Foundation, the evening begins with a seasonal, sustainably sourced meal by Great Performances Hospitality Group served with select wines, dessert, and accompanied by live music.

Following dinner, authors read from their work, discuss their inspiration, process, and views with an insightful moderator, and then open up the conversation to the audience before concluding the evening with a book signing.

Past authors have included E. L. Doctorow, Zadie Smith, Chinua Achebe, Jonathan Safran Foer, Lorrie Moore, Walter Mosley, Jonathan Lethem, Maggie Nelson, Nicole Krauss, Claudia Rankine, Jhumpa Lahiri, Robert A. Caro, and many others.
