Little Brown And Company/Hachette Book Group USA

Little, Brown and Company is one of America's oldest and liveliest publishing houses, known for publishing a distinguished, daring, and best-selling lineup of writers across a broad spectrum of subjects and styles.

Founded in 1837, Little, Brown featured Louisa May Alcott's Little Women, Emily Dickinson's poetry, and Bartlett's Familiar Quotations on its early lists, & all of those books are still in print today.

Little, Brown is also the home of Bulfinch Press, a leading publisher of art and photography books. Bestselling novelists on the Little, Brown hardcover & Back Bay paperback lists include James Patterson, J. D. Salinger, Alice Sebold, Anita Shreve, Walter Mosley, Herman Wouk, David Foster Wallace, Janet Fitch, Rick Moody, Luis Alberto Urrea, Kate Atkinson, John le Carré, George Pelecanos, Jimmy Buffett, Ian Rankin, Pete Hamill, and Michael Connelly.

Crumb, and the great American photographer Ansel Adams.

Bulfinch Press also publishes the photography of Sally Mann, Irving Penn, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Joyce Tenneson. Little, Brown publishes only around 60 new titles a year, divided evenly between fiction and nonfiction.

Little, Brown began publishing books for children in 1926. As the children's book marketplace has grown dramatically over the years, Little, Brown Books for Young Readers has grown with it and we currently publish a distinguished and diverse list of about 135 books a year.

Today the group is divided into three imprints designed to reach the wide spectrum of our readership (ages 0-16) most effectively: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers features our core list of picture books and hardcover and paperback fiction and nonfiction for middle grade and young adult readers; LB Kids produces novelty and brand/licensed tie-ins; and Poppy publishes paperback original series for teen girls. We have launched several bestselling series, including Marc Brown's Arthur, Matt Christopher's #1 sport series for kids, Zoey Dean's The A List, Lisi Harrison's The Clique, Hergé's The Adventures of Tintin, Holly Hobbie's Toot & Puddle, Stephenie Meyer's Twilight, James Patterson's Maximum Ride, Darren Shan's Cirque Du Freak, Joan Steiner's Look-Alikes, and Cecily von Ziegesar's Gossip Girl, as well as award-winning novelty books based on the toy and game brands ALEX and Cranium.

In 1993, Little, Brown created a new trade paperback imprint, Back Bay Books, to focus on long-term publication of the company’s best fiction and nonfiction. Back Bay’s new editions of William Least Heat-Moon’s Blue Highways, Tracy Kidder’s The Soul of a New Machine, Evelyn Waugh’s A Handful of Dust, and C.S. Forester’s Hornblower novels, among many others, have given these classics fresh lives. At the same time, Back Bay paperback editions of new works by David Sedaris, Anita Shreve, Janet Fitch, and Malcolm Gladwell have been impressive bestsellers in their own right.
