Two Roads Books is an imprint of Hodder & Stoughton, a British publishing house, now a division of Hachette.


Announced by its Publisher, Lisa Highton, in September 2010, Two Roads started publishing in 2015. Publishing about a dozen books a year, with a mixture of narrative non-fiction and fiction, its stated mission is ‘stories-voices-places-lives’.[1] Two Roads particularly champions reading groups and book clubs, and since she launched the list publisher Lisa Highton has travelled over 7,500 miles vising independent bookshops and their book groups.[2] Possibly the best known title on the Two Roads list to date is Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen, which was made into a film in 2011 starring Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon.[3]
