Mandy Jackson-Beverly

Hi, this week I'm in North Carolina and Georgia chatting with Alissa Redmond, owner of South Main Book company in Salisbury, and poet and found of P.R.A. Publishing Lucinda J. Clark.

Alissa Redmond is the owner of South Main Book Company in Salisbury, NC. She previously served in India, Afghanistan, Washington DC, Hong Kong, and Bolivia as a diplomat with the U.S. Department of State. She also worked in the City of New Orleans' Mayor's Office for Health Policy post-Hurricane Katrina and served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Fiji. A graduate of the N.C. School of Science and Math, UNC-Wilmington, and Duke University (Master's Degree in Public Policy), Alissa is proud to raise her six and ten-year-old daughters in their home state of North Carolina.

After an already-full career as a supporter of the arts through being an art dealer, gallery owner, and artist agent, Lucinda J. Clark began P.R.A. Publishing in 2002 with the mission of giving diverse voices in literature a chance to shine. 

P.R.A. Publishing believes in lifting up communities through their passion for books and expanding the diversity of voices in the world pertaining to books. To do so, they work with book festivals and in schools to celebrate and encourage reading, literacy, and diversity.
