COVID-19 Update

Candlewick Press offices are closed until May 4 in accordance with the newest COVID-19–related orders from the governor of Massachusetts. Our staff is working remotely, and Candlewick Press wants to assure you that we are taking every step possible to maintain business continuity while ensuring the safety and well-being of our staff. If you need to physically send us a package during this time period, please be in touch with your Candlewick contact to arrange an alternative delivery method. We understand that it's a time of uncertainty, and our thoughts are with all who have been impacted. Times like this remind us how thankful we are to be part of such a resilient community and how truly grateful we are for each and every one of our partners and readers. We thank you for your continued business.

Candlewick Press is committed to the authors and illustrators who create our books and to the readers who love them. We value the art of storytelling and are keenly aware of the power of stories to connect and comfort us. During this difficult time, we want to ensure our authors' and illustrators' works are protected without being prohibitive.
