Planting People Growing Justice Press founder, Dr. Artika Tyner, announced that it has entered a distribution arrangement with Lerner Publisher Services, a division of Lerner Publishing Group. The publishing group will be the exclusive distribution avenue for PPGJ Press in all markets beginning Jan. 1, 2022. Lerner Publisher Services will utilize its reputation and expertise to expand the market reach for PPGJ Press.

“Leaders are readers and our books seek to inspire the next generation of leaders,” said Tyner.

Planting People Growing Justice Press is well-known for exploring culture and history across the African diaspora. Lerner Publishing Services will initially distribute three PPGJ Press children’s book titles that include “Amazing Africa, A to Z,” “Gumbo Joy,” and the multiple award-winning “Justice Makes a Difference: The Story of Miss Freedom Fighter, Esquire.”

The publishing agreement will significantly increase PPGJ Press’ ability to put books in the hands of young people that reflect the diversity of the United States. A nationally-recognized author and civil rights attorney, Tyner founded PPGJ Press and Bookstore in 2017 to improve literacy, encourage and empower children to find joy in reading, and create social change. The Black woman-owned book publisher is working to increase diversity in books, promote youth leadership development, and provide young readers with lifelong tools to make a difference in the world.

The book distribution deal with Lerner Publisher Services is a measure of the impact that Tyner’s books and Planting People Growing Justice Press (http://www.ppgjbooks.com) are making in the world. Through its books, PPGJ is teaching children about their history, culture, and traditions. The books are fun and open new vistas for children, from STEM careers to teaching them about Black men and women who have made an indelible impact on the world.
