Globe Pequot debuts as trade division of R&L
Globe Pequot made its public debut as the trade division of Rowman & Littlefield this week at Book Expo America, the largest annual book industry event in the U.S. Founded in 1957 and based in Guilford, Conn., Globe Pequot was long known as the preeminent regional publisher of books about New England. Today, the company is both deepening its roots and expanding its horizons: The flagship imprint remains focused on all things local, expanding from a strong base of authors in New England to cover more of the mid-Atlantic and South. Recently acquired Gooseberry Patch has published more than 200 cookbooks, including several national best-sellers. DownEast is the go-to source for books about Maine, while TwoDot and Taylor Texas cover the American West. FalconGuides is the premier publisher of outdoor recreation guidebooks nationwide, while Lyons Press and Taylor Trade publish national best-sellers in their focus areas of American and military history, sports, hunting, fishing, nature and pets (Lyons), and entertainment history and kids’ books (Taylor).
