Penguin Group Launches Multimedia Site

puboffice2.jpgPenguin Group USA launched a new multimedia From the Publisher’s Office initiative today, a collection of free video and audio content to accompany book excerpts.

In addition to a new “reading room,” the site has two new multimedia spaces. In the Screening Room, videos feature authors like J.R. Ward and Laurie Halse Anderson. In the Radio Room, content ranges from audio interviews with Penguin Classics Executive Editor Elda Rotor to intelligence from Penguin Business Thought Leaders.

Here’s more from the release: “Most of the content for From the Publisher’s Office is created, written, shot, edited and produced by more than 30 Penguin Group (USA) executives and department team members who are closest to the content, some having worked directly with the books.”
