Join us on Thursday, July 18 for Summer Open House, a day of book culture, connection, and discovery at our home office in New York City.
We are so excited to present our lineup this year focused on all things summer! You’ll learn how to pick out produce at your local farmer’s market with Carla Lalli Music, and how to grill that perfect summer meal with Michael Symon. Discover the best beach reads with our fiction panelists Bethany Chase, Linda Holmes and Domenica Ruta, dive into the hottest summer thrillers with Cambria Brockman and Laura McHugh, and catch up with the former editor of Gourmet Magazine, Ruth Reichl.
Random House Open House is a seasonal event in New York City dedicated to conversation, connection, and, of course, fantastic books. We bring together a wide range of authors, from blockbuster fiction writers to Michelin-starred chefs, and everything in between, with a mission of fostering a universal thirst for knowledge and a passion for reading.
