Are you 2020’s ultimate bookworm? As clued up on the bestseller lists as you are the literary classics? Do you want to prove your status as a literary mastermind to us, your friends and family, and win a bundle of the year’s best books in the process?

If so, join us LIVE at 7pm on 15th December to play along and test your wits against other literature lovers in the first-ever Penguin Big Book Quiz. Take part by yourself, or with your friends and family virtually and start your Christmas festivities early.

Our quizmaster is QI Elf, co-host of the hit podcast No Such Thing As a Fish and author of The Last Day Andrew Hunter Murray. He’ll be joined by some of our bestselling authors including Stephen Fry, Bernardine Evaristo and Caitlin Moran as they put you through your paces with questions, picture rounds and more.

Whoever is crowned The Big Book Quiz of the Year winner will receive a special package of brilliant books from the past 12 months.

To take part, all you need to do is sign up here for a free ticket, and follow the simple instructions we send over via email. Or get a copy of Andrew Hunter Murray’s thought-provoking thriller THE LAST DAY with your free ticket for just £12.99 (RRP) – a perfect Christmas present for yourself!

This event will be accessible on or on facebook. If you have registered, you will be sent a link to join by email 48 hours before the quiz, and also a reminder email shortly before the event. 

If you purchase a copy of THE LAST DAY with your ticket, this will reach you in the 10 days following the event (Christmas post permitting!).
