While Io Anthology presents the history and seeds that grew to become the current publishing house, the story of our present and future is no less dynamic and exciting. As we move into the next chapter of the NAB story, it is the perfect moment to launch the newly remodeled and updated NorthAtlanticBooks.com. The result of nearly a year of focused work and development, our new website gives us a superb tool to present our latest offerings, promote our activities and those of our authors, and to give visitors a better understanding of our mission in action.

This week, we’ll be sharing vegan recipes from our cookbooks to help you prepare the perfect Thanksgiving feast. So whether you’d like to add a vegan dish or two to your table, or you’re looking for a way to celebrate the holiday without any animal products, check back for new recipes, which we’ll be posting from now until Friday. You’ll find a combination of sides and entrees to choose from, as well as some decadent desserts at the end of the week.

One of my favorite things about working at North Atlantic Books is that we don’t just put out books about making the world a better place—we go out in to the world and make it happen! Volunteering is an awesome opportunity to get away from our desks for an afternoon, and to get to know some of the issues that affect our neighbors and our habitat, and then do something about it. This year we worked with Save The Bay, a local organization that has been dedicated to protecting the San Francisco Bay since 1961.

Last month, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration declared a global coral bleaching event. Find out more about coral bleaching and what you can do to prevent it in this infographic inspired by Liz Cunningham‘s Ocean Country:

When the joy of compassionate service is combined with the pragmatic drive to transform all existing economic, social, and political institutions, a radical divine force is born: Sacred Activism. The Sacred Activism Series presents leading voices that embody the tenets of Sacred Activism—compassion, service, and sacred consciousness—while addressing the crucial issues of our time and inspiring radical action.
