UNC Press Announces Marcie Cohen Ferris and William R. Ferris Imprint

Continuing its distinguished legacy of publishing vital works on the American South, the University of North Carolina Press is establishing its first specialized imprint, the Marcie Cohen Ferris and William R. Ferris Imprint to publish trade books on this nationally important region. Imprints differentiate defined collections of publishers’ books to reviewers, booksellers, agents, authors, and readers. Each title published in this newly launched UNC Press imprint will carry a distinctive insignia and will be known as “A Ferris and Ferris Book.” It is an extraordinary moment in the Press’s 100-year history. More on this announcement can be read on the Ferris and Ferris Book webpage.
