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 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.

"Sticky Karma is a wild yet nuanced ride through our complex dance with COVID and into the mind of one very interesting man....  It's like sitting next to an old pal in a pub and ordering another round because you don’t want the night nor the stories to end."

     --Earl Hipp, 2022 NYC Big Book Award-winning author of Fighting Invisible Tigers

"For years I have relished Ms. Midstokke's columns in The Spokesman-Review, both for their wry self-deprecation and for the fine ear she tunes to backwoods grammar, whether in her homeland of Sandpoint or on an excursion to Scotland, where she discovers "the stoic soils of a sea-bruised shore.""

     --Paul Lindholdt, Washington State Book Award-winning author of In Earshot of Water and Interrogating Travel

3D Deli Diaries_edited.jpg

Spring 2023

"With inimitable quirkiness and fever dream flair, Ella Weber’s debut novel is a hysterical yet heartfelt parody of millennial plight, Midwest mediocrity, overweening artistic ambition, and the inanity of the daily delicatessen grind. As inventive and entertaining as autofiction gets, The Deli Diaries is an unforgettable slice of life unafraid to ask the big questions: Who ham I? What ham I? Where ham I?"
