through the publication of books. Our aim is to show how people’s lives have impacted
communities in the region, and to portray the culture as it realized by members of the
communities. We are interested in historical narratives, memoirs, photography, art,
oral history, biography, poetry, fiction, children’s books, cookbooks, and documents
that tell stories of the people and culture of southeastern New England.
For scholars and students, we publish reference and course books in the areas of archaeology, American studies, American history, literary studies, theatre studies, and the craft of writing.
For general readers, we publish the winners of the Iowa Short Fiction Award and the Iowa Poetry Prize, poetry anthologies, books on the archaeology and natural history of the Midwest, cookbooks, letters and diaries, biographies, memoirs, regional history, and collections of historic and contemporary photographs.
We harbour a worldly outlook attuned to dynamic social engagement; our books are intended as discussion pieces, designed to inform, challenge and enliven our readers.
