CHICAGO, IL - Independent Publishers Group (IPG), the oldest and second-largest book distributor in the United States, is pleased to announce the appointment of LATINFLY as its sales agent in Central America, South America and the Caribbean.

In this strategic move, LATINFLY will play a pivotal role in promoting IPG's extensive catalog in bookshops and other outlets across the designated territories.

About Independent Publishers Group:

Founded in 1971, IPG was the first organization specifically created for the purpose of marketing titles from independent presses to the book trade. Today, IPG’s wide reach into the book market includes distribution of both print and e-books from a wide array of publishers, digital printing and traditional publishing. With consistent growth year over year, IPG’s success has come from supporting and encouraging the growth of its publishing partners in the United States and worldwide. IPG was acquired by Chicago Review Press in 1987, and this acquisition formed the parent company Chicago Review Press, Inc., which now owns Chicago-based indie publishers Chicago Review Press and Triumph Books. In October 2021, IPG acquired UK-based United Independent Distributors (UID) and its subsidiary companies Eurospan, Marston Book Services and Orca Book Services, extending IPG’s menu of services and global reach.
