Penguin Random House, PEN America Team Up To Book The Vote

Book the vote

Book the Vote is an online initiative to provide information on the electoral system, voting registration, and civic topics. Neil Gaiman, Anita Hill, and Ann Patchett will be among the contributors to the initiative. Book the Vote is a collaboration among Penguin Random House, PEN America, the non-profit organization When We All Vote, and the literary retailer Out of Print, which is owned by Penguin Random House.

The website will include videos from Gaiman, Hill, Patchett, and other authors and public figures, including Jennifer Egan, Jeffrey Toobin, Susan Orlean, and Alan Cumming. One feature is called How America Works and covers four topics: the right to vote, voting for the president, the Supreme Court, and the electoral college.

What’s interesting about this project, of course, is not only that it combines the commercialism of the world’s largest publisher with the nonprofit work of three agencies but also that it creates a display format for some of its most prominent politically charged work and in a super-heated moment of a national market’s political competition.

Truth, facts, press freedom, and the future of open discourse are all on the ballot this November, PEN America CEO Suzanne Nossel said in a statement. Nossel and Penguin Random House U.S. CEO Madeline McIntosh said they were pleased to be working together to provide credible and authoritative information about the US election and voting rights.
