Event description


Spring 2017 Open House is back under our roof!

Random House is home to the world’s most acclaimed storytellers, thought leaders, and innovators, and we are opening our doors once again to host our signature special event, Open House, on Friday, May 12, 2017.

Our 11th Open House features authors Alan Alda, Jessica Seinfeld, Nancy Thayer, Sally Bedell Smith, Colum McCann, Susannah Meadows, Lynne Olson, Sarah Jio, Mandy Berman, and Dr. Terry Wahls. We’re stuffing gift bags, stacking the on-site bookstore, and pouring Union Wine at the end-of-day reception.

Held three times per year, this all-inclusive experience brings together the biggest names in publishing for a full day of interactive author panels, book talks, and a behind-the-books look at what’s new. And be sure to look out for Summer Open House, tentatively scheduled for late July or early August!
