In Fact Books

In Fact Books is an independent book imprint specializing in high-quality, research-driven narrative nonfiction on a wide variety of topics and real-life experiences. We believe that small publishers have the opportunity to provide a platform for original and underrepresented narratives, and it’s our mission to publish stories that create a richer understanding of our world.
