Get ready for the Big Bad Wolf Book sale this month

8 June 2018 - 241   - 0

The Big Bad Wolf (BBW) book sale has made its return early this year, following the highly enthusiastic response from Sri Lankan readers in 2017. This year the BBW will be open at the Sri Lanka Exhibition & Convention Centre (SLECC) from  June 28 to  July 8, with 1.5 million books at 60% to 80% discounts. Open 24 hours a day throughout the 11 days, the book lovers’ dream promises 255 hours of nonstop shopping. 

The organizers have promised a much more extended variety of fiction titles than last year, alongside the huge choice of children’s books- bedtime stories, colouring and activity books, and educational and interactive books. There will also be a huge array of nonfiction titles to choose from.

There will also be a food court courtesy the Sandwich Factory, Pizza Hut and Elephant House among other F&B partners.

Selected invitees will have the chance to attend a special preview of the sale on 27 June from 10am till 11pm, a day before the sale opens for the public. Visitors can win preview passes through contests on the Big Bad Wolf Facebook and through their media partners. Apart from this, visitors can claim exclusive benefits at the sale by signing up to be a wolf pack member on https://www.bigbadwolfbooks.com/lk/register/english

The brainchild of Andrew Young and Jacqueline Ng of BookXcess, the primary aim of Big Bad Wolf is to provide affordable books to the public and promote global English literacy. The local partner for Big Bad Wolf is ProRead Lanka, an organization focused on bridging the gap between knowledge accessibility and learning opportunities in Sri Lanka.
