Quill & Quire celebrating 80th anniversary with special April issue

Quill & Quire magazine is celebrating its 80th anniversary with a special issue that may be downloaded free (as a 30-day trial subscription) for reading on tablets, desktops or smartphones. The April issue showcases 80 books, events and the people that made them happen over the years. 

The venerable magazine reports reported book news and reviews ten times a year to publishing trade professionals, authors, editors, library professionals and avid readers. It has an average circulation of about 5,000 copies per issue (including 3,920 paid subscribers) and claims a total readership of 25,000.

It got its start serving the stationery industry and expanded into book publishing more and more particularly as interest in Canlit grew. It was briefly owned by Southam in 1970 and then flipped to Key Publishers, which ran it for the next 30 years until Key itself was sold to St. Joseph Corporation.
