- - The Millbrook Press, Inc. ( http://www.millbrookpress.com ) has
reached an agreement to sell its Roaring Brook Press imprint. The
proposed purchaser is Holtzbrinck Publishers
( http://www.holtzbrinckpublishers.com) , a group of companies
that includes Henry Holt and Company, Farrar, Straus and Giroux,
and St. Martin's Press. As a chapter 11 debtor in bankruptcy, The
Millbrook Press must obtain approval of the proposed sale from a
bankruptcy court. In addition, other companies that may wish to
purchase Roaring Brook will be given an opportunity to participate
in an auction. If no other potential purchaser emerges at auction
and the agreement with Holtzbrinck is approved, the company
anticipates that the sale will be made final in late April.
