Foreign Language Book Publishers
In November 2014 the lists of Focus Publishing/R. Pullins Company were acquired by Hackett Publishing Company, a small independent publisher with offices in Indianapolis and Cambridge, Massachusetts.
It was established in 1986 by a determined group of volunteers who wanted to increase the opportunities for Welsh women in publishing and bring Welsh women's literature to a wider public. They asked the people of Wales to show their support for the new enterprise by becoming shareholders in the cooperative and in the first six months more than 400 people bought shares. Honno continues to be supported by hundreds of individual shareholders who believe in its work.
True to its roots the press still only publishes work by women of Wales. Most of Honno's titles are novels, autobiographies and short story anthologies in English as well as Classics in both Welsh and English. We have in the past also published poetry, children's and teenage titles and books in both Welsh and English.
Our mission is to make learning and teaching English and Spanish an experience that is motivating, enriching, and effective for both teachers and students. In a collaborative effort with authors, editors, teachers, and students, we create instructional materials that meet needs of modern-day students throughout the United States.
