"Every life lost to breast cancer leaves behind a hole that can never be filled again: a wife, a mother, a sister, a friend, an aunt, a grandmother. I'm so grateful for organizations like The Breast Cancer Research Foundation for their efforts to find a cure for this devastating disease, and honored to support breast cancer awareness, detection, and research through Penguin's READ PINK program in 2014. With your help, we can move closer to the day when breast cancer leaves behind only survivors."

—Beatriz Williams, New York Times bestselling author

In our fifth year of the popular promotional and educational event, Penguin will offer an assortment of 6 bestselling mass market titles and 6 trade titles by some of the publisher's most beloved female authors in a special Read Pink edition. The participating authors are Nora Roberts, Catherine Anderson, Marie Force, Janet Chapman, Lisa Gardner, Jayne Ann Krentz, Jojo Moyes, Karen White, Jennifer Chiaverini, Wendy Wax, and spokesperson Beatriz Williams.

The mass market editions feature Read Pink seals on the cover and additional information in the back of the book, and the trade editions feature stickers on the cover. Both underline Penguin's support of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation's mission and urge readers to become actively involved in supporting the organization.

Penguin Publishing Group is proud to donate $25,000, regardless of sales, to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation in support of its extraordinary progress in breast cancer research and awareness. All Read Pink funds, across all five years, are an absolute commitment of funds; Penguin's donations to BCRF are never tied to the sales of Read Pink editions of our books.

Join the fight against this deadly disease by making your own donation to this organization today.
