Home to Charles Dickens, Mark Twain, the Bronte sisters, and Martin Luther King, HarperCollins Publishers is one of the world’s leading English-language publishers. Founded by brothers James and John Harper in New York City in 1817 as J. and J. Harper, it was acquired in 1987 by News Corp. The worldwide book conglomerate was formed following News Corp’s acquisition of British publishers William Collins & Sons, publishing house to legendary authors Agatha Christie, J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis among others. With two centuries of experience, HarperCollins covers an array of genres, including literary and commercial fiction, business books, children’s books, cookbooks, mystery, romance and religious books. Today, HarperCollins is the first publisher to digitize its content and create a global digital warehouse.
