HOUSE OF SPEAKEASY
House of SpeakEasy believes that book ownership should not be a privilege. Launched in 2017, The SpeakEasy Bookmobile is a direct response to the proliferation of “book deserts,” neighborhoods where bookstores are in short supply—or worse, nonexistent. Their modified box truck is outfitted with 54 linear feet of shelving that accommodate a variety of books for all ages. They partner with independent bookstores, literacy organizations, community boards, and arts institutions to curate appropriate titles. From plazas in The Bronx and Queens to the Boys & Girls Club in Jackson, Mississippi, they deliver books and book culture, ensuring that books can be made available to readers everywhere.
