Legacy Lit: a new publishing brand for different voices

When I joined Hachette Books in 2016, I was interested in publishing books that tackled issues such as social justice, equality, fairness and inclusion. The books and authors I've been lucky enough to publish include notably Maid by Stephanie Land, The End of White Politics by Zerlina Maxwell and Conversations in Black by Ed Gordon.

In 2020, the publishing world had to cope with growing demand from readers for books expressing different voices and the lack of diversity was highlighted.
Throughout my career, I've wanted to make progress in the issue of diversity.With the support of Michael Pietsch (Chief Executive Officer of Hachette B

ook Group) and his teams, I was able to go even further and create Legacy Lit, the first publishing brand that will pay tribute to the experiences and viewpoints of people of colour.

As of 2022, Legacy Lit will publish 12-15 titles each year, covering a wide range of subjects: non-fiction, women's interest, current affairs, as well as fiction looking at matters of social justice.

Our mission is to defend the books that give a voice to authors, communities and subjects that up to now have been marginalised or neglected. Legacy Lit will offer a catalogue of innovative titles by taking an interest in the work of all authors, as well as striving in particular to highlight stories written by and for BIPOCs (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour). Promoting diversity also means offering every reader a new perspective and new tales to sate their hunger for reading.
