In celebration of the 80th Anniversary of Penguin Books we have put together an 8-week scavenger hunt! This brings us to the final week of our scavenger hunt and we want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who participated and explored the lovely city of New York with us this summer! Please tell us what you thought of the scavenger hunt in the comments below!
The 3 clues from Week 8 went up on Instagram, one per day on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday pointing to the New York City location that is linked to one of the Penguin Books 80 Bestsellers! You have until Sunday, August 30th to decipher the clues and post a photo of the location. One winner will be selected from all participants. All weekly participants will be entered into a grand prize drawing. Happy hunting!
Can you decipher the mystery NYC location from Week 8?
