We look forward to connecting with you at the 2023 Massachusetts History Alliance conference this summer. Attendees will receive 30% off selected titles from our Bright Leaf imprint, and free shipping with promo code MAS071.
In 2017, the University of Massachusetts 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 Globe, The Portland Press Herald, Publishers Weekly, the New York Times, Book TV, NPR, VPR, and New England Public Media.
Fine print: MAS071 expires on October 31, 2023.
