We’ve had the privilege of representing talented non-fiction authors for more than three decades and our clients continue to inspire our work – with the common goal of finding the right editor, the right publisher, and the right home for their book projects.
Seventh Avenue is proud to represent Canada’s Governor General, The Right Honourable David Johnston. His first book will be published in April by McClelland & Stewart.
From our present Governor General, a series of 50 (of several thousand) carefully chosen letters he has written to people he has admired and befriended over his seventy-plus years, that sets out Mr. Johnston’s frank, informed, and novel thoughts about Canada.
To say that Rick Antonson is driven is something of an understatement. He published three books, circumnavigated the globe researching them and laying the groundwork for book #4, wrote a play, – all the while as the CEO of Tourism Vancouver. He retired from that job in the summer of 2014 and God knows what he has in the planning stages now that he has free time!
I first met him in 1985 when he was an executive at local Vancouver publisher Douglas & McIntyre. He was leaving publishing while I was entering the business but it was hard not to admire his controlled energy and curiosity about all things.
