Our Mission:


To provide resources and education to our members to “raise our collective IQ” as small businesses and create a learning community to sustain ourselves;


To advocate for heightened awareness of independent publishers within our industry, in the media, and with readers;

Keeping the Torch

To function as “keepers of the torch” of American culture in partnership with writers, translators, booksellers, book reviewers and book review editors and producers;


To become a bridge for our members to organizations such as ABA, AAP, AAUP, ALA and CLMP;


To strengthen our common cause in creating a more tolerant and inclusive industry by advocating for bringing in more people of color and diverse origins onto our staffs together with a commitment to bringing a more diverse range of writers to the reading public;

Common Ground

To find common ground and a spirit of partnership with independent booksellers, with whom we share not only our love of good books but also our struggle as small businesses.
