After Noli, Penguin Books to launch Rizal’s El Filibusterismo June 16 in NYC

(SPOT.ph) Five years after Penguin Classics released Jose Rizal’s Noli Me Tangere, the New York-based publishing company will release the book’s sequel, El Filibusterismo, on June 16 at the Philippine Center in New York City, reports GMA News. The paperback version of El Filibusterismo will be available on September 1.

 

Penguin Classics, a branch of Penguin Books, is known for publishing inexpensive paperback versions, said the article. Some of the titles under the brand include those by William Shakespeare, John Steinbeck, Henry James and Charles Dickens.

 

Elda Rotor, editorial director of Penguin Classics, is part Filipino, and has previously paved the way for the publication of Noli Me Tangere. In an article published in Female Network, Rotor said she takes pride in saying that the country’s national hero is an author who proved that the pen is indeed mightier than the sword.
