TAN BOOKS ACQUIRES NEUMANN PRESS
TAN Books, the Publisher You Can Trust with Your Faith, announced today its acquisition of Neumann Press, a Minnesota publisher of classic Catholic titles for children and adults. The acquisition more than triples TAN's children's titles and provides a comprehensive homeschooling line. Popular books and sets acquired in the transaction include Angel Food for Boys and Girls, the Saints and Friendly Beasts series, and American Cardinal Readers. "In its 32 years of operation, Neumann Press and its late founder, Dennis McCoy, preserved hundreds of classic Catholic titles, treating them with the care and craftsmanship they richly deserve," said Conor Gallagher, vice president of publishing for TAN Books. "It is an honor to continue the work of Dennis and the McCoy family, keep Neumann Press alive, and bring its great selection of Catholic classics to a wider audience than ever." "Neumann Press is known and loved by thousands of families for preserving so many treasures of Catholic culture, especially vintage children's books and homeschooling resources," added Rick Rotondi, vice president of new business development. "It is a privilege to be entrusted with this legacy -- and together with TAN's resellers and distributors we will greatly increase the availability of Neumann Press titles."
