Hanover Square Press

Launched in 2017, Hanover Square Press aims to publish compelling, original fiction and narrative nonfiction—the kind of books that keep you up all night reading and that you want to talk about the next morning. The imprint draws its name from the square that was once known as “Printing House Square” for the American printers, publishers, and booksellers who thrived there in the 1700s and early 1800s. Our list encompasses a broad range of genres—from crime, thrillers, and high-concept fiction to history, journalism, and memoir—and is guided by our search for works full of engaging ideas, unique subjects, and fast-paced stories.
