Our Mission

To spark meaningful cultural conversations, reach a devoted new audience of readers . . . and upend the bestseller list.

Our Story

Zando offers a new model to connect inspiring authors to the audiences they deserve—and helps readers find new books to love. We work with a select group of beloved public figures, platforms and institutions, publishing a carefully chosen slate of books that reflect those partners’ authentic passions and interests.
