About Thorndike Press

Located in Waterville, Maine, Thorndike Press is also home to Wheeler Publishing, Kennebec Large Print, and Large Print Press. We’ve published large print titles for more than 30 years. We also distribute large print selections from other publishers like HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Random House, and Mills & Boon (Harlequins and Silhouettes).

Thorndike Press publishes more than 100 large print titles every month — the vast majority in the current bestseller and genre fiction categories. We’re proud to offer the largest selection of large print bestsellers available anywhere, as well as an extensive mid-list selection curated to support a wide readership. Many of our titles are published at the same time or within three weeks of the original publisher’s release, making it easy for libraries to refresh their print collections with the newest and most popular titles.

Thorndike Press advocates enhancing understanding, engagement, and comprehension in young readers and offers a wide selection of Middle Reader and Young Adult titles in the large print format.
