Fernwood Publishing, Canada’s largest progressive publisher, is proud to announce its partnership with Columbia University Press. Fernwood titles will now be sold and distributed in the United States, Australia and India by Columbia University Press.
“We’re incredibly excited for this change,” said Fernwood publisher Beverley Rach. “With Columbia’s expertise in the trade and academic markets, we’re looking forward to further amplifying the voices and ideas of our authors to new readers.”
Fernwood publishes across a range of subject areas and disciplines, including Indigenous Studies, Sociology, Political Science and more. They also published the award-winning, national bestselling Policing Black Lives, by Robyn Maynard. This spring Fernwood will also release NOlympians: Inside the Fight Against Capitalist Mega-Sports in Los Angeles, Tokyo and Beyond by Portland-based professor, author and activist Jules Boykoff.
Fernwood Publishing Co. Ltd. was founded in August 1991, and has offices in Black Point, Nova Scotia, and Winnipeg, Manitoba. Since 1992, Fernwood and Roseway have published over 900 titles.
Over the last few years Fernwood has expanded its publishing mandate with more books intended for an audience of general readers who are interested in social change and social justice. With the acquisition of the Roseway imprint in 2006, they have launched a publishing program more oriented toward fiction. All of our books, non-fiction, fiction and academic, are designed to appeal to critical readers.
