Regional Books Fund

In 2017, UMass Press launched a new imprint, Bright Leaf, which publishes insightful and accessible books about New England.

Written for a popular audience, Bright Leaf titles tell stories—about New England’s history, culture, and environment, and about New Englanders themselves. Treating topics that range from the history of slavery and whaling to architecture, birding, and the natural world, Bright Leaf books entertain and inform. It comes as no surprise that these titles have received awards and garnered attention from major media outlets like the Boston GlobeThe Portland Press Herald, Publishers Weekly, the New York Times, Book TV, NPR, VPR, and New England Public Radio.

Please donate to our Regional Books Fund now to help us continue publishing vital and entertaining books about New England.
