Great trade publishers define their times and endure beyond them. Henry Holt and Company, founded more than 150 years ago, has not only endured since its days of publishing Robert Louis Stevenson novels and Robert Frost poetry, but it has distinguished itself with a dynamic list of award-winning and bestselling fiction (Hilary Mantel’s magnificent Wolf Hall trilogy and Susan Choi’s Trust Exercise, winner of the 2019 National Book Award), history (Pulitzer Prize winner Rick Atkinson’s Revolution Trilogy), politics (Stacey Abrams and Elizabeth Warren), mysteries and thrillers, biography, science (Elizabeth Kolbert’s Pulitzer-winning The Sixth Extinction), popular culture, and psychology.
Holt is the home of incomparable storytellers, as the original publisher of The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison, and prominent authors including Paul Auster, bell hooks, and Tony Horwitz. Upcoming authors include Liane Moriarty, Jenny Lawson, Kimberly Jones, Robin Kelley, Laurie Frankel, and memoirs by Mariah Carey and Lenny Kravitz. In addition to the Holt imprint, the company also publishes books under the Metropolitan Books, Andy Cohen Books, Times Books, and Picador imprints.
