Maeko Bradshaw recently took over the independent press from Kim Wyatt, who founded the company in 2009, specializing in nonfiction and poetry.
Bradshaw, a Tahoe local, received an MS in book publishing from Portland State University. Her first release as Bona Fide’s publisher, “Permanent Vacation II: 18 Writers on Life and Work in Our National Parks,” will release June 8. The second volume of this popular collection features writers from national parks all over the country, including locales like Cape Cod National Seashore and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
“I’m excited about this collection, and about the future of Bona Fide,” says Bradshaw. “I’m so fortunate that I get to be in a place that I love and do what I love.”
“Permanent Vacation II” can be pre-ordered online. Readings will be held at Lake Tahoe Community College in South Lake Tahoe June 13 and at Word After Word in Truckee June 25; see the Bona Fide Books schedule for more information. Books can be purchased locally at Gaia-Licious and Dharma Love in South Lake Tahoe and Word After Word, or order directly from Bona Fide Books here.
Bona Fide Books is at 1069 Magua Street in Meyers. Visit the website for information about classes, workshops, letterpress sessions and more, or call Maeko Bradshaw @ 530-600- 4070.
