We are in P.E.I. not N.Y.

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

In her thought­ful re­view of Steven May­off ’s Our Lady of Steer­age (Guardian, Satur­day, 18 July), El­iz­a­beth Cran re­marks that “B&B has its roots in Jeri­cho, New York. How it got to the is­land, where it seems to be putting down roots, is a mys­tery to us.”

We are grate­ful to Ms. Cran for pro­vid­ing this op­por­tu­nity to clar­ify our po­si­tion. The of­fice of Bu­nim & Ban­ni­gan, Ltd. Is at 174 Syd­ney Street in Char­lot­te­town, and has been there since 2010, when our part­ner, op­er­at­ing out of East 14th Street in New York City passed away. No B&B busi­ness is con­ducted in Jeri­cho, New York, which is sim­ply our New York State cor­po­rate ad­dress.

The cause of the con­fu­sion is no doubt our predilec­tion for keep­ing a low pro­file. As we dis­trib­ute books in the U.S. as well as Canada, we do not con­fine our­selves to is­land-based au­thors and artists such as Steven May­off.

In ad­di­tion to works by au­thors in the U.K. and U.S., we have pub­lished books by is­land au­thor David Hel­wig and is­land artist John Bur­den, and shall be shortly pub­lish­ing The Grum­bling Hive Re­vis­ited, il­lus­trated by the four Ma­cAdam fam­ily artists of West St. Peters. Our ed­i­to­rial and de­sign work is mostly ex­e­cuted by is­land tal­ent.
