The Random House Story

Founded in 1925, Random House is home to the world’s most acclaimed storytellers, thought leaders and innovators. Our Random House special events create one-of-a-kind experiences, connecting readers with authors and readers with readers.

Whether you need inspiration for holiday entertaining, gift ideas, or just an evening of lively conversation and behind-the-scenes peeks at your favorite books, you’ll find what you’re looking for at Holiday House.

Join us on Wednesday, December 8 at 7:00 p.m. ET on Zoom for our third annual Holiday House celebration. With your $30 ticket, you’ll receive a copy of Debbie Macomber’s new Christmas novel Dear Santa, a digital advance copy of Kali Fajardo-Anstine’s highly anticipated debut novel, Woman of Light, a digital sampler of the evening’s featured recipes, a digital sampler of our most anticipated winter 2021 titles, special discount codes from our sponsors, and of course, admission to this virtual event.

Discover the best books to gift loved ones—or to escape with yourself—during our fiction panel, featuring Gary Shteyngart (Our Country Friends), Taylor Jenkins Reid (Malibu Rising), Mia McKenzie (Skye Falling), and Kali Fajardo-Anstine (Sabrina & Corina); moderated by Bustle editor-in-chief Charlotte Owen.

Delight in cooking and entertaining tips for every type and size of holiday gathering from our expert cookbook authors, Vallery Lomas (Life Is What You Bake It), Marissa Mullen (That Cheese Plate Will Change Your Life), Bryant Terry (Black Food), Shannon Mustipher (Tiki: Modern Tropical Cocktails), and Edgar Castrejón (Provecho); in a conversation moderated by TASTE editor-in-chief Matt Rodbard.

Finally, there’s nothing better than word-of-mouth recommendations from readers you really trust. Penguin Random House CEO Madeline McIntosh joins Ballantine senior editor Chelcee Johns for a conversation about their favorite books of the year, and the ones you absolutely can’t miss.

We can’t wait to spend this evening of lively conversation, delicious food, and unputdownable reads with you. Attendees will also receive a recording of the Zoom event so you can watch—or re-watch—on your own time. (We know this time of year can get scattered!)
