Event description


We are excited to announce the authors appearing at Fall Open House! Join us on Friday, December 7 for a day of book culture, connection, and discovery at our home office in New York City.

Come hear #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult discuss her timely new novel, A SPARK OF LIGHT, and hear how she is branching out in new arenas in her creative life…plus a few surprises!

Go behind-the-scenes with journalists Barry Meier, Ken Auletta, and Heather Tesoriero as they discuss reporting the story.

Learn how to cultivate self-possession and self-care in your life with Mya Spalter's ENCHANTMENTS and Emma Loewe and Lindsay Kellner's THE SPIRIT ALMANAC.

Line up your next fireside reading binge with our fiction panel - Gary Shteyngart, Nathan Englander, and Karen Thompson Walker.

Take trips to the past with Amy Bloom, author of WHITE HOUSES, and Susan Elia MacNeal's THE PRISONER IN THE CASTLE and allow Elizabeth Letts to take you somewhere over the rainbow with FINDING DOROTHY.

Get drawn into the worlds of Mira Jacob and New Yorker cartoonist's Liana Finck with their new graphic memoirs, GOOD TALK and PASSING FOR HUMAN.

Meet Beau L'Amour, author, editor, and son of legendary American storyteller Louis L'Amour.

Treat yourself to a perfect fall day at Random House. Meet our authors, connect with other readers, enter to win a raffle prize, enjoy wine and snacks at our end-of-day wine down reception, and get a sneak peek at the books that have our office buzzing!
