Company niche: The mission of Brown Paper Press is to engage readers on topics of contemporary culture through quality writing and thoughtful design. Unbound by genre, our press strives to deliver socially relevant works that advise, guide, inspire and amuse. We champion authors with new perspectives, strong voices and original ideas that just might change the world.


Based in Southern California, Brown Paper Press seeks to merge the sophistication of big publishing houses with the scrappiness of the country's most successful (and forward-thinking)independent authors. We are an environmentally friendly press with a mission to engage readers on topics of contemporary culture through quality writing and thoughtful design. Our books have been featured by numerous media outlets—including the PBS NewsHour, Psychology Today, the Los Angeles Review of Books, and C-SPAN. Book critic David Kipen has called the founders of Brown Paper Press “wonderfully quixotic”—and we’re pretty sure he meant that as a compliment.

Distribution: Independent Publishers Group

Company niche: Non-fiction


When Council Oak Books issued our first two titles in 1985, our aim was to bring out great writing in beautifully designed books and to keep our titles in print for a long time. That we have succeeded in that mission is shown by the fact that one of those two first books, Cleora’s Kitchens, is still in print in the same kind of rich hardcover format that wowed the cookbook world all those years ago. After our fifth year in business, one of the nation’s premier book reviewers, Jonathan Yardley, wrote of us in the Washington Post, “Council Oak is in all respects a remarkable operation, committed to publishing good books in the best way possible.”

We are certainly grateful for all who are part of the Council Oak Books story, the authors who have trusted us with their work, the reviewers who have enthusiastically encouraged us, the booksellers who have hand-sold our books to their customers and, especially, for the readers who have loved our books and made it possible for us to keep them in print and bring out new work, year after year. As we celebrate our more than thirty years in business, Council Oak Books continues its mission to present quality nonfiction in the best way possible, bringing new ideas and new energy to our shared literary culture.
