(December 27, 2018) Dundurn Press is thrilled to congratulate our founder and publisher John Kirk Howard on being named a member of the Order of Canada.

Howard founded Dundurn Press in 1972 in order to promote “Canadian authors telling Canadian stories” — a commitment that the company has maintained in its over 45-year history and during its expansion from a small non-fiction press to one of Canada’s largest independent publishers. 

In her citation for the honour, Governor General Julie Payette recognized Howard “for his commitment to Canadian authors and to a domestically-owned publishing industry.” 

Dundurn's staff and authors are thrilled to see Howard's dedicated contributions to Canadian publishing recognized by one of Canada's highest honours.

 

Kirk Howard is available for interview.
