The Penguin Post Magazine celebrates three years of publishing (PLUS: Win prizes worth a total of R16,000)
To celebrate its third anniversary, The Penguin Post is giving away hampers to the collective value of R16,000!
The Penguin Post has been exciting book lovers all over South Africa for the last three years and has proved to be an invaluable source of insight for booksellers across the country.
The magazine about books for book lovers, The Penguin Post is a unique marketing initiative from Penguin Random House South Africa (PRHSA), and a first from the publisher.
PRHSA’s list of books includes everything from nature and finance to cookery and children’s, in both English and Afrikaans. Keen to provide their loyal customer base with an entertaining and reliable source of author news and interviews around this diverse list, the publisher launched the magazine in 2020, when the South African media industry met an impasse owing to the Covid-19 hard lockdown.
Lauren Mc Diarmid, who is the founding editor of the magazine, says:
‘It’s been an absolute pleasure putting together every single edition of The Penguin Post. The effect that reading books has on us is unsurpassed. Books allow us entry into other worlds; they present us with characters and scenarios we may never encounter in our own lives, and, in doing so, help us to better understand the human experience. What makes this magazine invaluable is that it helps expose people to that possibility.’
Three years in, the magazine has gained a loyal following of readers, both locally and abroad, and continues to publish interesting and informative content around PRHSA’s impressive stable of books and their expert authors.
To celebrate its third anniversary, The Penguin Post’s birthday edition has a host of exciting giveaways. Prizes include tickets to Cape Town’s Open Book Festival, placements in the Creative Writing Intensive from SA Writers College, restaurant vouchers to Nederburg’s Manor restaurant, a collection of ten must-read novels, plus a R1 000 voucher towards a bookcase, and a glorious foodie hamper from some of Penguin’s favourite local cookbook authors.
Entry details can be found in Volume 25 of The Penguin Post.
It is available for free in bookstores nationwide, or online here.
