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.
