“Our aspiration for the imprint is to create books that draw from the best of pop culture&nmdash;its most imaginative and talented storytellers, innovators, and literary chroniclers&nmdash;to create beautifully written and produced works that will entertain and enthrall readers, but also illuminate critical issues. But the partnership isn’t just about the books — it’s also about audiences: we want to find new voices and new stories, but also new readers.” —Chris Jackson, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of One World books
