NEW DELHI: Celebrated American author Dan Brown, who will deliver this year's Penguin Annual Lecture in Mumbai next month, says he is excited about his India visit.



"I visited India when I was 18 years old and became captivated by the people's warmth and the mystical beauty of the landscapes. I have always dreamed of returning to India and am very excited to do so now," he says.



Brown will deliver the eighth Penguin Annual Lecture on November 10 in Delhi and November 12 in Mumbai and will speak on codes, science and religion.



This is the first time that the lecture is being organised in two cities.



Gaurav Shrinagesh, CEO of Penguin Random House India says, "Dan Brown is a global phenomenon - with 'The Da Vinci Code' and his other immensely popular books, he has been single-handedly responsible for getting a whole new generation of readers around the world interested in books, travel, symbols, history and art.



"We are privileged to publish his books at Penguin Random House and it is a real honour for us to have him with us in India. We're looking forward to a truly memorable lecture in both Delhi and Mumbai."



Regarded as one of the most prestigious cultural events of the year, the annual lecture series has been featuring some of the world's most respected leaders, thinkers and writers. It is the first annual lecture to be organised by a publishing house in India.
