About the Series

What was once one of the most vital literary hubs in the city, The Half King Reading Series, has a new home at the Salmagundi Club. At monthly events, authors of new works will discuss their books in a warm, welcoming, and informed setting. Selections are predominantly, but not exclusively, non-fiction, current events, biography, autobiography, novels and memoir.


Salmagundi members are welcome to have dinner beforehand in our dining room. Dining reservations can be made via our Reservations page.
