Stanford University Press will launch a new trade-oriented imprint, Redwood Press, focused on “intellectually stimulating books—serious non-fiction and thought-provoking fiction” in spring 2015. The press will publish four to six titles annually beginning with The Woman Who Read Too Much, a novel by Bahiyyih Nakhjavani, and The Shared Society: A Vision for the Global Future of Latin America, by former Peruvian president Alejandro Toledo. “Stanford University Press’ mission has always been to publish first-rate books that advance scholarship, inform public debate, and influence practice,” Stanford University Press director Alan Harvey said in the announcement. “In launching Redwood Press, we are furthering that mission by reaching beyond the academy to a much wider readership. These books embody true public scholarship.”
