Mango Publishing, a Miami-based independent house focused on a diverse list of voices and topics, has acquired Yellow Pear Press, which also includes Bonhomie Press, a fiction and memoir imprint.
Founded in 2015 in San Francisco, Yellow Pear Press specializes in lifestyle and regional titles as well as notecards and journals. The YPP list works well with that of Mango Publishing, which publishes across an eclectic range of topics including LGBTQ issues, feminism, health and self-help, fiction, and children’s and young adult books.
Mango Publishing was cited as one of PW’s Fast-Growing Companies of 2019 and YPP is its latest acquisition: In October 2019 Mango acquired the Red Wheel/Weiser imprint of Conari Press, which included nearly 300 titles. Yellow Pear Press publisher Lisa McGuinness will continue to oversee the imprint and she said that beginning in fall 2020, YPP would release three books a season.
Mango CEO Chris McKenney said, “Lisa’s talent for crafting beautiful books shows in all her Yellow Pear Press titles and we’re honored to be able to welcome her onto the Mango team.”
