About Exposit Books
Exposit Books is a new imprint of McFarland that combines serious nonfiction with a bookstore-first approach. Exposit’s initial offering is Finding Jacob Wetterling by Robert M. Dudley. The book covers in detail the 1989 kidnapping in St. Joseph, Minnesota, of 11-year-old Wetterling, the remarkable response from the community and local and state authorities, the 27-year investigation and its heartbreaking conclusion. The first full group of titles, set for a fall 2017 release, will likewise feature true crime topics. Exposit will publish a wide range of titles, eventually including books about entertainment, psychology, sex, health and history. Our logo represents the eastern hellbender, a giant salamander native to the streams and rivers of Exposit’s home in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Exposit titles will reveal the unexpected beneath the currents.
