As a vital part of the larger nonprofit, Americas for Conservation and the Arts, Mandel Vilar Press's mission is advancing diversity and conservation in book publishing by bringing underrepresented and diverse literature of the Americas to the larger English speaking readership. MVP serves as a conduit of multicultural exchange and its availability plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy and vibrant democracy. With this end in mind, MVP focuses its book publication program on books both written by minority writers and books about minorities--using minorities in the widest sense of this term.
As the nonprofit publishing arm of Americas for Conservation + the Arts, MVP is one of the only handful of book publishers dedicated to connecting the literature of the Americas. We unite the works of the best writers of Latin America (including the Caribbean) with the leading ethnic and minority writers of North America, MVP publishes the best books and translations on the environment, conservation, culture, history, memoir. fiction, science and politics. Publishing between four and eight titles per year, MVP focuses on works that are extraordinary and influential--destined to become the classic of tomorrow. MVP seeks to open up our cultural borders and promote cultural literacy--a vital role in maintaining a healthy and vibrant democracy. To these ends MVP has so far selected, edited, designed, published and promoted over 35 diverse books to the English readers around the USA and abroad. Mandel Vilar Press books are available in bookstores across the country, online and downloadable as e-books.
