A New Imprint ~ T2P Books (Truth to Power)
Truthful Narratives = Better
Did a great book that is now out of print radically alter your
understanding of an historical event or issue? T2P Books, a new imprint
of Steerforth Press, is crowdsourcing ideas for out-of-print titles
that deserve to be reissued with new introductions for today's readers,
and you can help.
What we are seeking:
Classics like Rachel Carson's Silent Spring
and Randy Shilts’
And The Band Played On
changed discourse around their topics
forever. These famous books are not out of print, of course, but they
are examples of the types of works we are seeking: meticulously
researched narratives that were written for a general audience, and
that upended popular misconceptions and increased awareness around
important events and issues.
accounts that provided a window on
events and conditions that call out for attention, like Ishmael Beah's A
Long Way Gone
or Barbara Ehrenreich's Nickel and Dimed
. Also under this
category, we are seeking whistleblower memoirs, books by people who
witnessed abuses of power
and wrote about their experiences.
