BenBella just closed on our second title in the BenBella Cause line. This is a small line of books, each of which is associated with a good cause, to which we donate half our profits. It’s our way of giving back and celebrating our good fortune as a publishing house.
Meals On Wheels’ Made With Love: The Meals On Wheels Family Cookbook will be published by BenBella Books Fall 2011. Made With Love celebrates the importance of families eating together with personal stories of favorite family meals and recipes from noted personalities (chefs, actors, writers, etc.) and MOW volunteers as well as inspiring tips to help families come together to help others in need. Proceeds will benefit Meals On Wheels Association of America, an organization that serves more than 1 million meals every day to seniors in need.
Already on board: Wolfgang Puck, Helen Mirren & Kate Mirren, Paula Deen, Dr. Maya Angelou, The Lee Brothers, Susan Orlean, Sandra Lee. More to come!
Our first book in the line is Sword of Darrow, an independent reader fantasy written by a father and his learning disabled son, with profits going towards learning disabled charities. The cover art is just in and very cool:
