Lauren Hall is a literary agent, executive producer, and multiple #1 New York Times bestselling writer who comes alongside incisive thinkers and creatives to bring ideas to life.
Over her ten years in publishing, she has worked on 26 New York Times bestselling books, collaborating with and representing both new and seasoned talent. Having participated in every step of the publishing process—agenting, editing, designing, promoting, and ghostwriting/co-writing—has provided her with a deep and holistic insight into what makes a book both commercially and culturally successful.

She later went on to co-found a content agency that served talent through multiple verticals including books, podcasts, television, and film.
Prior to her work in literary and talent management, Lauren worked at The Village Voice and literary non-profit, 826NYC.
Lauren has had the pleasure of hosting and interviewing popular writers and artists like Paul Auster, Malcolm Gladwell, Colum McCann, Zadie Smith, Sarah Vowell, and Duran Duran.
