About

The Stephen Greene Press was Brattleboro’s premier book publisher for over twenty years. Begun in 1957, the SGP not only specialized in books of regional interest but, in addition, it also produced an eclectic range of nonfiction. The SGP’s rich catalog featured titles on everything from wood-fired saunas and cross-country skiing to British cartoons, covered bridges, Americana, cookbooks, essays, and history. Originally housed under the Book Cellar at 120 Main Street, it moved in 1969 to its building on Fessenden Road in South Brattleboro.
