Thanks White Pine Press!

Many heartfelt thanks are due to Dennis Maloney of White Pine Press for his recent (and very generous!) donation of over 1,000 books to our Book Drive for Rural Oregon Libraries and Tribal Libraries. Dennis sent us some of White Pine's finest titles, and lots of them. This shipment of books showed up at our door via semi as a shrink-wrapped pallet that had to be unloaded by forklift. We can't wait to pass these books along to the libraries involved in our donation program. This project has exceeded our expectations, and we're thrilled to be taking part in getting great books of poetry into the hands of the reading public. Here's to White Pine Press and Dennis Maloney!

White Pine Press is a non-profit literary publisher, established in 1973, which publishes poetry, fiction, essays, and literature in translation from around the world. For the past thirty years we have been at the forefront in bringing the rich diversity of world literature to the English speaking audience. We seek to enrich our literary heritage; to promote the cultural awareness, understanding, and respect so vital in our rapidly changing world; and to address complex social and human rights issues through literature.
