Penguin Random House Presents 2017, Penguin Random House UK’s annual celebration of its books, authors and teams, took place this year at London’s iconic Barbican Centre on the 8th & 9th March.
For two days, over a thousand Penguin Random House staff heard from each of our nine publishing houses, as well as from colleagues in our Penguin Brand team, Penguin Ventures and Creative Responsibility.
Alongside a host of inspiring presentations, new activities for this year included tasters and giveaways, a Penguin Shop stocked with limited edition proofs, and a dedicated Penguin Random House Presents app.
From a Q&A session with British astronaut and author of Hello, Is this Planet Earth? Tim Peake, to hearing Arundhati Roy read from her new novel The Ministry of Utmost Happiness - each publishing house's presentation showcased the energy and purpose behind hundreds of Penguin Random House titles to be released throughout the year ahead.
It’s impossible to do justice to the many highlights of Penguin Random House Presents 2017, but these photos offer a glimpse of a hugely creative, diverse and exciting two days.
Summing up the event, Penguin Random House UK’s CEO, Tom Weldon said: “Our purpose has been lit up in bright lights: to connect the world with the stories, ideas and writing that matter”.
