Anansi Publishes Very Good Books
House of Anansi Press was founded in 1967 with a mandate to publish Canadian writers. We respectfully acknowledge that the land on which we operate is the traditional territory of many nations, including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee, and the Wendat peoples.
Independent businesses are so vital to our communities. They are there for us when we need a place to gather, browse, or grab a coffee.
We need our indies and this year, they need us too.We asked some of our creators to recommend a store that they'd like to support, and the response was overwhelming. A rush of enthusiastic messages naming bookshops, art supply stores, gift shops and more came in from all over Canada. We're pleased and proud to share their recommendations with you. We've compiled and organized them by province or territory and then by city, so that not only can you shop local, but perhaps discover a new gem closeby!
