Chicago Review Press, founded in 1971, is a highly successful mid-sized publishing company that now produces 60 new titles a year under four imprints: Chicago Review Press Books (general trade and children's titles), Lawrence Hill Books (African American interest titles), Ball Publishing (gardening titles), and Zephyr Press (professional development titles for teachers). It has often been listed in Publishers Weekly as one of the fastest-growing independent presses in the country.

Top staffers at Chicago Review Press Books—Publisher Cynthia Sherry and Managing Editor Michelle Williams—make themselves available to IPG publishers for problem solving and shop talk. They have 30 years of combined publishing experience, and they can answer questions regarding typical provisions in publishing contracts and the ins and outs of author royalty provisions.
