Academic Services

Welcome to Penguin Group (USA)’s Academic pages, a collection of useful information about our books, authors, and programs designed to meet the needs of teachers and students. As the first and we think, foremost, paperback publisher of classics, and the publisher of such modern writers as John Steinbeck, Arthur Miller, William Trevor, Julia Alvarez, T.C. Boyle, Saul Bellow, J.M. Coetzee, Junot Díaz and Khaled Hosseini, to name a few, our books have long been classroom favorites. Our editors listen hard to teacher comments and work to grow our lists of intellectually important and relevant texts. We aim to provide you, students and teachers alike, with the best titles at the most affordable prices. With the Penguin Classics our partnership with teachers has now prospered for 55 years:

The Penguin Classics, though I designed them to give pleasure even more than instruction, have been hailed as the greatest educative force of the twentieth century. And far be it from me to quarrel with that encomium, for there is no one whom they have educated more than myself.
E.V. Rieu, founding editor of the Penguin Classics, on his retirement in 1964
