"Spoken Interludes is a critically acclaimed literary salon where award-winning, best-selling, and up-coming writers read their own work. DeLauné Michel created Spoken Interludes in 1996, when the choices for literary events were pretty much limited to poetry readings or signings in bookstores. Since that time, this literary institution in New York and Los Angeles has been covered extensively by publications ranging from The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, GQ Magazine and has been heard on National Public Radio.
The salon begins with the audience arriving from 6:00 to 7:30 for an exquisite buffet dinner. The readings follow from 7:30 until 8:30, and feature writers such as: John Burnham Schwartz, Karen Russell, David Denby, Arthur Phillips, Michael Korda, Frank Bruni, Arianna Huffington, Michael Connelly, Jay McInerney, Jennifer Egan, AJ Jacobs, Kathryn Harrison, Ann Packer and Robert K. Massie. The evening winds down with book signing and chatting with the authors. DeLaune Michel
Since its debut, Spoken Interludes has provided a place where people come together, enjoy great food, and hear stories like their own reflected in the voices of others. See a list of upcoming events. " (MDGentleReader)
