The Middletown Press (Middletown, CT) - - COMMUNITY -

Es­tab­lished lo­cal pub­lisher Globe Pe­quot met with its na­tional sales team at The Gris­wold Inn in Es­sex to dis­cuss fall 2019 books with their sales force ear­lier this month. Gath­er­ing at the 1776 Gris­wold Inn to cel­e­brate New Eng­land history was par­tic­u­larly fit­ting for Globe, an in­de­pen­dent press. The Inn is one of the old­est con­tin­u­ously op­er­at­ing inns in the coun­try, and also in­de­pen­dently owned. Founded in 1947 in Ch­ester as the Pe­quot Press, named af­ter a lo­cal tribe, it was ac­quired by the Bos­ton Globe in 1981 be­fore chang­ing hands to Morris Com­mu­ni­ca­tions. Its cur­rent owner, Row­man & Lit­tle­field, ac­quired the press in 2014. Now in Guil­ford, Globe pub­lishes ap­prox­i­mately 400 ti­tles an­nu­ally, fo­cus­ing on iconic brands and peo­ple, re­gional in­ter­est, history, life­style, cook­ing and food cul­ture, and folk­lore.
