Alice Greene & Company is the latest imprint of a long-established educational publisher founded in Palo Alto, California and now located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. As director of this new imprint, I have combined my love of teaching skills to new audiences and working with a team of talented writers, artists and printers, with my passion for gardening and sustainability.
Our first book had a serendipitous beginning. While volunteering one snowy February at Ann Arbor’s community gardening organization, I was lucky enough to meet Sheri Repucci. Her love of writing and boundless enthusiasm for beginning gardeners planted the seeds for what would become Alice Greene’s first book, Easy Edibles.
There is an incredible array of talent in Ann Arbor, and I am amazed to say that Easy Edibles was not only conceived for our region, but was written, illustrated, designed and printed all within a few miles of our downtown location. That’s local!
Even more recently, we have had the opportunity to bring together poetry chapbooks from some of the best regional poets, again assisted by a talented team of illustrators and book designers.
Thanks for reading about us – I hope you will join us on our next book adventure.
