From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The HarperCollins Speakers Bureau (also known as HCSB) is the first lecture agency to be created by a major publishing house.[1] It was launched in May 2005[1] as a division of HarperCollins Publishers to book paid speaking engagements for the authors HarperCollins, and its sister companies, publish. Jamie Brickhouse is the director.[2]

Some of the notable authors the HCSB represents include Carol Alt, Dennis Lehane, Gregory Maguire,[3] Danny Meyer, Mehmet Oz, Sidney Poitier, Ted Sorensen, and Kate White.
