Sue Monk Kidd will celebrate the 75th anniversary of Penguin Books at Blue Bicycle Books on Tuesday, June 22 from 4 to 6 p.m. featuring penguin cupcakes, champagne and the Penguin-mobile.
After arriving in the the Penguin-mobile, Sue will raise a glass of champagne for a toast, talk about how she became a Penguin author, and sign copies of Traveling with Pomegranates (co-written with daughter Ann Taylor Kidd) as well as her other New York Times best-selling titles.
Blue Bicycle is one of only ten stops on the tour, so don't miss out on this special opportunity!
As a store that has offered great books at low cost for 15 years, Blue Bicycle is thrilled to be included in the celebration. In 1935, Allen Lane started Penguin with the revolutionary concept of selling good literature at low prices, not just at bookstores but also at railway stations and newsstands. Famous for a simple design with broad bands of color, three million Penguin paperbacks sold in the first year.
To commemorate the occasion, Penguin has donated 75 of its all-time bestselling paperbacks to Burke High School.
This event is free and open to the public.
