Hachette Book Group closes Weinstein Books

Hachette Book Group

New York, NY–October 12, 2017

Hachette Book Group announced today that effective immediately, it is closing Weinstein Books, a partnership of Hachette’s Perseus Books and the Weinstein Company. Titles currently under the Weinstein Books imprint will be published by the Hachette Books imprint, and the Weinstein Books team will join Hachette Books.

Weinstein Books was founded in 2001 as Miramax Books by Harvey Weinstein and his brother Bob Weinstein. The imprint was re-formed as Weinstein Books after the 2005 separation of Miramax and Disney. In 2009, Weinstein Books became a joint partnership of the Weinstein Company and Perseus Books Group. Weinstein Books was included in the purchase of The Perseus Books Group in 2016.

Headed by publishing director Georgina Levitt and editorial director Amanda Murray, Weinstein Books has published about 10 books a year in the areas of memoir and biography, fiction, health and wellness, self-help and relationships, popular culture and entertainment and movie tie-ins.
