Independent presses, sometimes called indie presses or small presses, are publishers who are not affiliated with large corporations. They publish fiction, poetry, nonfiction, graphic novels, and some specialize in niche markets. Indie publishers invest in art, voice, and vision over profit. These books add texture and excitement to the literary ecosystem. They carve a luminous space—on our shelves, in the literary marketplace, and in readers' hearts and minds—for breathtakingly original and brilliant books. We rotate the books on our Read Indies spotlight shelves each month, so stop back to see what's new. You'll find additional indie press titles throughout the store!
