Latah Books is an independent book publisher located in Spokane, Washington. We are proud to work with numerous award-winning and bestselling veterans, as well as talented new authors hungry to make their mark.

Why Latah?

A Nez Perce word, Latah (pronounced LAY-tə) is the name of the creek along which most of our staff has lived, worked, recreated, meditated and fallen in love for many years. Latah Creek is a modest but vital stream flowing onward to greater waters. We can't imagine a more fitting name for the spirit of our enterprise, and for honoring the legacy of those who cultivated this land before us.

"As introspective as he is entertaining, Tellessen uses a captivating blend of muscular and minimalistic prose to give us an uncomfortably honest look at where courage and nature diverge.... This book will stay at the front of my mind and my shelf for years to come."
