Walker And Canongate Publishers Launch Young Adult Imprint

Independent publisher Canongate has teamed up with children's specialist Walker Books to create a young adult imprint, packaging Canongate's books for a younger audience. The imprint, Walker Canongate, launches this month with four titles.

Jamie Byng, Managing Director of Canongate, commented, "I've long admired the Walker list, both in terms of its range and quality, and so the prospect of launching a list with them is a thrilling one. Not only do I think it is tremendously exciting for our two companies but also for those writers involved, their books and most importantly, young readers. I hope it will be a long and fruitful partnership"

Helen McAleer, Managing Director of Walker Books, added, "Walker has a reputation for being the most innovative and creative independent publisher of high quality books for children, a reputation Canongate shares for its adult publishing programme. The Walker Canongate partnership is a hugely exciting opportunity that not only unites our two companies, but enables us to put a range of bestselling, award-winning books into the hands of the next generation of adult readers."
