Bona Fide Books shutters

Bona Fide Books based in Meyers has closed its doors, publisher Maeko Bradshaw announced on its Web site on Dec. 30.

“I want to thank all of you within this community for supporting my endeavor of taking over Bona Fide Books. I wouldn’t have been able to succeed this last year without so many of you,” Bradshaw wrote in a post on the Web site.

“I hope a small independent press will find its way back into our community one day, but for now, thank you for being a supporter of this small press and believing in our writers,” she wrote.

Bona Fide’s latest book, “Permanent Vacation II: 18 Writers on Life and Work in Our National Parks,” was published in May.

Bradshaw told the Tahoe Weekly that the Web site would remain online only for a short time, but that no books sales would be available. Some copies of “Permanent Vacation” may still be available at local retailers including Word After Word in Truckee, or Gaialicious or Dharma Love in South Lake Tahoe. Copies are also available on Amazon. | bonafidebooks.com
