You can be proud owners of an impressive selection of Puffin Classics and Vintage Children Classics, which have never been made available previously to the readers, by availing special promotional offers. The bookstore will also stock exclusive merchandise that has been designed for the festival.
Henry Eliot, the creative editor at Penguin Classics and an authority in classic literature, will be joining the festival with his latest project: ‘The Penguin Classics Book’, to engage audiences with the genre.
“For more than seven decades Penguin Classics has provided the world with accessible, affordable editions of the best books ever written, and I’m very much looking forward to celebrating this extraordinary library of classic literature,” Eliot said. Henry will visit the store and promote the love for classics through various workshops and school sessions for readers from different age groups.
