Known as “The magazine about books for book lovers”, The Penguin Post is a first for Penguin Random House South Africa (PRHSA). To celebrate their 2nd Birthday, there’s a hamper giveaway of signed copies from some of the publisher’s biggest authors!
Having been faced with a decline in platforms available on which to publicise their books during the hard lockdown of 2020, the publisher innovated with an original marketing concept that filled the gaping hole left by multiple magazine closures, and offered a unique
product for their audience of avid readers.
The magazine – which features interesting and informative news, views and interviews around PRHSA’s diverse stable of titles and their authors – goes out both digitally and in print to 140 book shops across South Africa. What’s more, it’s completely free! To sign up to the digital version of the publication, which links to extra content such as extracts, recipes and competitions, can do so at www.penguinrandomhouse.co.za/penguin-post.
In celebration of their two years, the magazine is giving away hampers of signed copies from some of the publisher’s biggest authors – including Harlan Coben, James Patterson, Marian Keyes and the writer behind The Handmaid’s Tale, Margaret Atwood – valued at R3 000 each. Entry details can be found in Volume 19 of The Penguin Post, out now. Find it at www.penguinrandomhouse.co.za/penguin-post-latest-issue
Volume 19 will be available from now until the end of August, and has everything from inspiring memoirs and gritty true crime to cookbooks.
So, cosy up and happy reading!
