It is with great pleasure that Penguin Random House India announces that the 2017 Penguin Annual Lecture will be delivered in New Delhi on 26 December by one of the most iconic and popular Indians in the world today, global entertainment personality, game changer and Unicef ambassador Priyanka Chopra.
One of the leading superstars of the Indian film industry, Priyanka Chopra has had a meteoric rise on the global stage with her hit TV show Quantico. She won the People’s Choice Award for two consecutive years, and was named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world and one of Harper Bazaar’s 58 women game changers of the modern era. She is also on LinkedIn’s power profile list for 2017.
Priyanka Chopra is an icon for today’s young Indians who identify with her drive, passion, intelligence and charisma. She has been a social media trendsetter and has a massive fan base across the globe. Much loved and admired as an artiste by people in India and around the world, she is also recognized as a global Indian — a woman who has broken the glass ceiling to reach the highest echelons of international stardom — and for her philanthropic work as Unicef’s global goodwill ambassador.
One of the most prestigious and eagerly awaited cultural events on the calendar, the Penguin Annual Lecture, hosted by Penguin Random House India, was started in 2007 as an initiative to bring leading writers, artists, thinkers and key personalities from India and across the world in direct contact with audiences and admirers in India. The first such event to be organized by a publishing house in India, the Penguin Annual Lecture is immensely popular with readers, book lovers, and the youth in particular. This will be the eleventh edition of the Penguin Annual. Lecture; over the past ten years, speakers have included thought leaders like His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, Professor Amartya Sen, Thomas Friedman, Amitabh Bachchan, Ramachandra Guha, and beloved authors from both India and abroad like Dan Brown, Jeff Kinney and Ruskin Bond.
Through the Penguin Annual Lecture, Penguin Random House India aims to spread the thrill of fresh ideas to a new generation of readers, thinkers and future achievers.
The Penguin Annual Lecture will be held in New Delhi on 26 December and will be telecast and webcast live. More details of the Lecture will follow soon.
