Holly's Notes

Wait, is it really August already??? What happened to the summer? I hope you are taking advantage of Maine’s 320 miles long and 210 miles wide (thank you google) spectacular outdoor playground, given covid 2020. And you know, less visitors.


The wild ride of Maine Bicentennial Community Cookbook refuses to slow down, as most of you know. And if you don’t…you might want to get in on it. Along with our other super star 2020 front list books, This Day in Maine, offering a daily dose of Maine history and Wild! Weird! Wonderful! Maine., a title that beckons to know more. And as always, our ever-solid back list is prime and ready to add local interest to your shelves.


As promised, several of our favorite reprints are back in stock and Hold This (soft cover) is on deck. August will bring you Jim Nichols' Blue Summer and early September brings Ruth Moore and Kathryn Olmstead, Maine authors who will captivate you with their novels and essays depicting Maine’s hardscrabble people. Beach reads are calling. (Lakeside and mountaintop reads, too!)


Please note that we have revamped our Islandport Press website, so previous links may no longer work. But please continue to peruse our books via our online catalog or on our my first ever, “Holly’s page" which has my highlights and latest releases on the top and contains all our books, sortable by collection and genre using the bar on the left.

Take care,


Holly Eddy
