At Haymarket Books, our mission is to publish books for changing the world. Now more than ever, the need to do just that is at the forefront of our minds. We all deserve to live in a world where we are each cared for, nourished, and sheltered.
The combined effects of fear, confinement, income loss and the potential destruction of family savings augur a mental-health crisis on an even larger scale than the pandemic itself. Consider solidarity an essential vaccine.
We at Haymarket Books want to express our solidarity with all of you in this difficult and tenuous time. Our staff is actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation, and our main priority is the safety and well-being of our staff and our authors.
