Created in Indianapolis in 2013, the company is rooted in a literary publication entitled Read This, which was launched by Cheryl Knobel, D.A. Lockhart, and John Powers. Growing from there, the company’s early days (including creation of the company website) began out of a farmhouse in Indianapolis.
