About the Press

A little house on the prairie with big ambitions, University of Regina Press (URP) publishes books that matter--in both academic and trade formats. Our non-fiction trade books tend towards the hard-hitting, while most of our scholarly titles are accessible to non-specialists. We endeavour to develop writers into public intellectuals, encourage debate, and inspire young people to study the humanities by publishing books that are both seen and relevant. 

Since our launch in 2013, University of Regina Press has published six national bestsellers: 

Speaking in Cod Tongues: A Culinary Journey by Lenore Newman (2017)

Firewater: How Alcohol Is Killing My People (And Yours) by Harold Johnson (2016)

Otto & Daria: A Wartime Journey into No Man's Land by Eric Koch (2016)

The Education of Augie Merasty: A Residential School Memoir by Joseph Auguste Merasty, with David Carpenter (2015)

Children of the Broken Treaty by Charlie Angus (2015)

Clearing the Plains by James Daschuk (2014)
