Andover Business - Andover Green Book Publishers
In 1992 Jeannie and Peter Ferber began Andover Green Book Publishers with their first book Journey to a New Day, a collection of poems by Doris Peel, illustrated by Peter Ferber. Originally they ran the publishing from their home quickly moving it to an office in Ballardvale. Later they moved the business to Alton New Hampshire.
When they published I Am Able, I Am Bound, a biography of Yury Meshkov, the first president of Crimea, they befriended Russian people who told them of the poor state of books available to Russian children. The Ferbers donated funds to enhance and update school libraries in Russia.
