For the month of June all proceeds from the sales of books by Black creators through our website will be donated to The Festival of Literary Diversity (FOLD), Black Lives Matter — Toronto, and A Different Booklist Cultural Centre (ADBCC) — The People’s Residence. Creators will be paid their full royalties from the sale of each book, and 100 percent of the remaining proceeds will be split between these organizations.
This is one among many steps House of Anansi Press and Groundwood Books will be taking to amplify Black voices. We are continuing to reflect, listen, research, and discuss our next steps as a company and as a part of the Canadian publishing community.
