Shipping Temporarily Affected By Illinois’ Social-Distancing Order

Unfortunately, we just learned that Moon City Press’ distribution outlet, the Chicago Distribution Center, has closed until April 9 in response to the social-distancing order in Illinois. This will, of course, temporarily disrupt our ability to ship our titles, but rest assured that normal business procedures will resume as soon as the order is lifted, and we encourage you to go ahead and order books in the meantime as a way of supporting both our press and our authors:

Thank you for your patience, and stay safe!
