Sierra Club Partners with Counterpoint

PW Daily reported yesterday that Sierra Club Books has signed a new co-publishing agreement with Counterpoint LLC, and will produce about eight titles a year starting in the spring. Sierra Club will handle acquisitions and editorial development from its San Francisco office and Counterpoint will handle the making, marketing, selling and fulfillment of the books from the Berkeley office the newly formed company is planning to move into soon. The new deal is similar to the co-publishing arrangement Sierra Club has had for its adult titles with the University of California Press since 2002.

Counterpoint CEO Charlie Winton said the Sierra Club books added a new dimension to the Counterpoint LLC editorial mix. “I am pleased that when we go out in the Spring we’ll have three lists that do very different things but are complementary,” said Winton.
