Meet Norwood House Press



Patti Hall, President and Publisher

Patti started Norwood House Press 10 years ago in her house in Norwood Park, a Chicago neighborhood.  Today, the company has over 1200 product offerings for the library and classroom.  Patti is responsible for product development and day-to-day operations at the office on the Northwest side of Chicago. Her favorite Team Spirit book is The Detroit Pistons because their origins as a company team is such a fascinating story. 


  Bridget Golembiewski, Inside Sales Rep

Bridget is Norwood’s inside sales representative, working with the school districts where NHP currently has no reps on the ground. She also contributes to the marketing and social media projects that help more people learn about Norwood House Press. Bridget is a recent graduate from Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, and loves working with libraries. Her favorite Norwood House Press book is The Three Pig Sisters from the MySELF Bookshelf series.


Ashley Hoff, Marketing Manager


Ashley is responsible for a variety of marketing initiatives, including social media, website management, newsletters, catalog production, and advertising.  She started with the company in 2011.  Her favorite books include The Detroit Red Wings because she is a big team fan and the MySELF Bookshelf series because she can read those with her daughter. 


Don Hull, Director of School and Library Markets


Don is responsible for the company’s direct sales, such as managing our national independent sales force and direct marketing efforts.  He has close to 30 years of experience in publishing which includes sales, marketing, and editorial work. Don contributes to new initiatives and company strategy in marketing, sales, and social media. He hails from Hamburg, New York, outside of Buffalo, so his favorite Norwood House Press title is The Buffalo Bills.

Jennifer Newberger, Office Manager
