Penguin Classics Halloween Sweepstakes!

Halloween is here, and we want to give you a pair of spooky classics to celebrate! Two lucky winners will receive The Penguin Book of Witches by Katherine Howe and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Other Stories by Washington Irving, with an introduction by historian Elizabeth Bradley!

Both authors stopped by to take our Pop Quiz at the End of the Universe: Elizabeth Bradley told us why she’s terrified of wax museums, and Katherine Howe revealed the details of her Hester Prynne Halloween costume. Howe also chatted with our own Ay-leen the Peacemaker about the history of the English and North American witchcraft trials.
