Real stories are the best stories

Diverse. Powerful. Page-turners. These are the not the history books you read in school. This is nonfiction that reads like fiction. Quindaro Press is on a mission to change the way we read the past. We want to inspire the next generation of readers with amazing, page-turning history. Our books are featured in leading journals including Booklist, Publishers Weekly, and School Library Journal.

We’re also leaders in book discovery for librarians, educators, parents, grandparents, uncles, aunties, and anyone else who wants to foster a love of history in the next generation of readers. Join our newsletter, read our reviews, or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.
