The Hatchette Book Group is a primarily United States-based bookseller and publisher. The company has multiple publishing houses across the country, as well as one house in Canada. The publisher prides itself on telling stories from diverse authors. They believe this helps to give readers more viewpoints to see the world from, both in fictional and non-fiction stories.
Named as a play on words of the famous book To Kill a Mockingbird, Tequila Mockingbird by Tim Federle is a mix between a cocktail recipe book and a bit of introduction of the stories that inspired the drinks. It is not often that such a combination comes around, which makes this a truly unique book. It is both perfect for literature fans and those who like to try out new drinks.
Pink: A Women’s March Story
The Hatchette Book Group also publishes children’s books. Pink by Virginia Zimmerman tells the story of a young girl who gets swept up in the Women’s March, which took place in 2017. The story is told from the girl’s perspective. Just like many girls and women did in real life, Lina knits pink hats and protests with others at the march.
How the One-Armed Sister Sweeps Her House
Cherie Jones, a writer with Caribbean ancestry, brings a not-often-seen viewpoint in her recent fiction novel, How the One-Armed Sister Sweeps Her House. This story shows the less-idyllic side of life in tropical Jamaica. Sisters need to learn to stick together, especially when they have something to hide from their mother. All of this, on top of a recent crime streak in the area, brings even more conflict into the islanders’ lives.
Buzzfeed: Joy in the Stars
Buzzfeed is well known for having quirky articles and quizzes, but did you know they also publish books? Buzzfeed: Joy in the Stars is a non-fiction self-help book that mixes all of the fun of astrology with the carefulness of self-help. The book promotes taking care of your body, mind, and spirit== with some help from the stars (based on your sun sign), of course. This book makes a great read for anyone who thinks astrology is charming and who wants to improve themselves.
Hatchette Book Group publishes all genres of books from a wide variety of authors who come from all backgrounds. Readers will be hard-pressed to find another publisher with such a large range of diverse authors and viewpoints. Certainly, this bookseller has something for everyone.
