Harvill Secker celebrates 100th birthday

12th February 2010

Random House Group imprint Harvill Secker is to celebrate the 100th anniversary of its first incarnation, publishing firm Martin Secker.

The publisher will mark the centenary with a range of promotional events over 2010, designed to show how the firm has brought some of the best international writing to the shelves of British readers.

In addition to celebrating at the major literary festivals of the year, Harvill Secker will dedicate February 27th to international literature in an event at Foyles, with authors including A.S. Byatt, Tim Parks, Xiaolu Guo, Gene Kerrigan and Alon Hilu attending.

Jonathan Ruppin of Foyles said the bookshop is 'excited' to be hosting the event, as it will give readers the chance to meet writers of international prestige.

'Harvill Secker has a tremendous record of publishing the very finest world literature, the sort of books which transcend cultures to tell us something profound about the world we live in,' he added.

'Many of its titles are consistently strong sellers for us and they are a major part of the diverse range we as the world's largest independent bookshop like to be able to offer our customers.'

Authors including Haruki Murakami, Louis de Bernieres, Umberto Eco and J.M. Coetzee currently call Harvill Secker home, while literary greats of the past such as George Orwell, Mikhail Bulgakov and Thomas Mann are featured on its list.
