#Merky Books Live

Penguin Random House


Penguin Live created an unforgettable, sold out event at the Barbican Main Hall to celebrate #Merky Books, a platform set up by Stormzy and Penguin Random House to find a new generation of readers and writers, and to launch the first book to be published by #MerkyBooks, Rise Up: The #Merky Story So Far by Stormzy. The event reflected the spirit of #Merky Books by showcasing some of the most exciting new voices in spoken word and performance poetry, as well as in writing. We curated a three part event building to a rare live interview with the voice of a generation, Stormzy. The evening achieved what it set put to do by inspiring 1000's of people, generating dialogue both online and offline and selling lots of books.
