Settlement House Books is a nonprofit, independent publisher of poetry, with emphasis on the work of first-generation Americans. We take our name from the settlement houses of the late 19th and 20th centuries that provided community - and continue today, through social and cultural support and services to the urban poor and immigrant populations.
