Today TAN Books is proud to be a part of that mission and to reach even wider audiences through our extensive distribution partners.
“I have long been an avid reader of G. K. Chesterton, and an admirer of the Chesterton Society. I am excited to bring the works, thought, and spirit of this great man and this great organization to an even wider audience,” said Conor Gallagher, Publisher of TAN Books. “It is an honor to continue the work with Dale Ahlquist [president of ACS]to bring these books—and Chesterton—to more people.”
TAN will bring its Chesterton Society titles to new audiences, making them available at generous discounts to its wide reseller network and featuring them prominently in its consumer marketing, which includes more than 500,000 direct mail pieces and 2 million email promotions per year.
TAN Books, in cooperation with the American Chesterton Society, will also begin releasing several new books a year under the American Chesterton Society Imprint.
