MBPR provides networking and professional development for our region’s established publishers as well as the many vendors and contractors that work for them.


Welcome to our new website and branding! We hope you find the site easy to use and navigate. The site is fully responsive on all your devices.

MBPR hosts informational lunches throughout the year, inviting speakers to address issues of importance to the membership. Events for our upcoming 2020–2021 season will be posted here when available, and recaps of our events will be posted shortly after they occur.

MBPR offers audio recordings of these luncheon presentations to current members of the organization. Please go to the RESOURCES tab and create your personal login using the “New User Registration” tab for access to the MBPR Member Resources.

Among our members are multi-national children’s book publishers, prestigious literary presses, textbook publishers, distributors of independent presses, and some of the nation’s largest independent publishers.
