These are books distinctively published for social service and civic organisations to advance their “causes”. With editorial staff who have themselves served in these organisations before, we could better embrace the purpose and passion behind each “cause”. Be it caring for the needy, encouraging child adoption, or greening our planet, we’re naturally “wired” to work on social books. Talk to us.
