Second Story Press was co-founded in 1988 by Margie Wolfe and three other women dedicated to publishing feminist-inspired books for adults and young readers. We are thrilled that Spring 2009 will mark our 20th year of publishing great books that matter. Our books are sold around the world, have been translated into over 50 languages, won many awards, and have been adapted for film and stage.

Our list spans adult fiction and nonfiction, children’s fiction, nonfiction and picture books, and YA fiction and nonfiction. We continue to look for stories that feature strong female characters and explore themes of social justice, human rights, equality, and ability issues. We have been very fortunate to work with organizations like BOOST (formerly the Toronto Child Abuse Centre,) Literature for Life, Canadian Breast Cancer Society, The Canadian Ovarian Cancer Society, The Canadian Cultural Centre of the Deaf, Leave Out ViolencE, and Planned Parenthood.

Second Story is a member of the Association of Canadian Publishers, the Organization of Book Publishers of Ontario, and the Canadian Children’s Book Centre. We are grateful to the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council, and the financial support of the Government of Canada through the Book Publishing Industry Development Program and the Association for the Export of Canadian Books. We would like to acknowledge the assistance of the OMDC Book Fund, an initiative of Ontario Media Development Corporation.
