TRADE NEWS: Brunswick Books to distribute, represent New Star Books effective May 1, 2016


Beginning May 1, 2016, New Star Books will be sold and distributed to the book trade in Canada by Brunswick Books.

Toronto-based Brunswick distributes and/or represents among others Fernwood Publishing, Between the Lines, Monthly Review Press, Pluto Press, Inanna Publications, and Zed Books.

Lindsay Sharpe and Cheryl Steele will be our rep for Central and Eastern Canada and national accounts. Harold Shuster will be covering the Prairies and Northern Ontario out of Winnipeg. Victoria-based Kim Goodliffe will be representing us in British Columbia and Alberta. You can find their contact information here.

Brunswick will also be representing New Star’s list to university and college teachers across Canada.

The move represents a homecoming of sorts. Back in the 1980s, New Star’s academic sales rep was Errol Sharpe / Fernwood Books, back before it became the publishing and distribution juggernaut that is today.

Profuse thanks to LitDistCo, our distributor since 2012, as well as the many outstanding sales reps for the Literary Press Group of Canada, who have presented our books to the trade since 1994. LitDistCo will be accepting returns of New Star titles until April 30, 2016.
