Stephanie Wolfe Murray

All of us at Sandstone Press are saddened to learn of the death of Stephanie Wolfe Murray, co-founder of Canongate Books. At a time when publishing in Scotland was considered to be mainly a local endeavour, Canongate under her leadership became a significant literary institution leading, in turn, to its present eminent, international presence.

Stephanie Wolfe Murray was a foundational figure in the rebirth of Scottish publishing.

There will be many obituaries published in the next few days. Meanwhile, we can do no better than to point you to the notice now posted on the Canongate website while extending our condolences to her many friends and colleagues and, of course, to the family.
