Publisher’s description: The definition of “catalyst” is “something that causes an important event to happen.” We have used the word “catalyst” in our press’s name because we believe that literature is a force for change. It is transformative, subversive, and revolutionary. Catalyst Book Press will publish books that follow the human journey through life, paying special attention to those historical and current moments of individual and group transformation, revolution, and change.
