An Important Note About Holiday Shipping:
Our office is closed between December 16, 2020 and January 4, 2021. During this period, we are not fulfilling online orders or shipping books out. If you place an order during this time, your order will ship AFTER January 4, 2021.
House of Anansi and Groundwood Books titles are still available during this time from your favorite bookstore! To find your closest independent bookstore, visit https://www.indiebound.org/indie-store-finder.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and delays with Canada Post all shipping times are approximate. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee when your package will arrive.
As our physical bookshop is closed to the public, gift wrapping is not available at this time.

Shipping Procedure and Options
We normally ship from our office in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, within 48 hours of receiving your order. Orders can only be shipped on business days so the above order processing guideline does not apply to holidays. At times of exceptionally high volume we may take longer than 48 hours to process orders, up to 5 business days.
Shipping costs and delivery timeframes are based on weight of parcel, destination, and shipping method chosen. When you place an order, we will offer you a selection of delivery options each with the associated shipping cost calculated on the weight of parcel, the destination, and the expected delivery date range. When you confirm your order, the shipping cost you choose will be added to your order.
Free Shipping Option
If your order is to be sent within Canada and the total comes to CAD $35.00 or more (after any discounts or coupons, and before taxes), then you may choose “Free Shipping” as your shipping method at checkout.
Please note that Free Shipping applies only to orders to be shipped within Canada via the Canada Post Regular Parcel method.
