What are the Tables of Contents monthly readings?

Every month, we gather a handful of the most exciting literary talents around (really truly world-class, we’re so lucky) and ask them to read a piece of new work that alludes to food before a small audience. Then chef Evan Hanczor cooks a tasting menu with a course corresponding to each reading. After, Evan leads all the authors in an intimate, wide-ranging conversation about their writing practice, their quirky eating habits, the intersections of food and art, and more.

How do I get involved?

The fastest (and tastiest) way to see what these readings are like is to attend one. Buy a ticket! You can also get in touch about partnerships or reading with us via our Contact page.
