The Reading Life Celebrates Penguin Classics and One Book One New Orleans

Aug 9, 2016

This week on The Reading Life: Elda Rotor, vice president and publisher of Penguin Classics, and Paul Buckley, creative director for Penguin Classics. They’re celebrating the line's 70th anniversary with a gorgeous book, Classic Penguin: Cover to Cover.

Megan Holt, the project leader for One Book One New Orleans, talks about this year's selection, Kim Vaz de Ville’s Baby  Dolls: Breaking the Race and Gender Barriers of the New Orleans Mardi Gras Tradition, and previews events coming up. And Susan has some paperbacks to tuck into that book bag for the beach.
