Offering insider access to the country's most sought after authors amid the luxury of Beverly Hills, BHLE presents an intersection of literary culture and entertainment filled with great food, wine and, of course, books. Akin to European cafe culture and the days of the Algonquin Round Table, The Beverly Hills Literary Escape gives participants "green room" VIP access to leading authors in intimate settings and trendy venues.

with Tobias

“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.”

– The Catcher in the Rye
