A Day to Appreciate the Fruit of Your Labor

By Taelor Marquetti, intern

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life
– Confucius

With Labor Day, and my last day at Bright Sky Press, approaching, I’ve been thinking about the quality of my work. During my time here, I have been intimately involved in the publishing process: something I’ve always dreamed about. The publishing process can be extensive: from book proposals to editing, to design and printing. While things can get busy in a publishing house, nothing is more rewarding than knowing that the work we do is meaningful.

Bright Sky Press is comprised of a handful of smart and dedicated women. Through collaboration with our talented authors and illustrators, we are able to not only pay homage to our local history, but also tell stories that entertain and inspire.

At Bright Sky Press, we’re in the business of promoting literacy. To do this is no easy feat, but we are dedicated to serving our community.

This Labor Day weekend, take a moment to reflect on the work you do, and know that it is meaningful. Enjoy your break from work by delving into one of our awesome books. Gain clarity on what direction you want to go in life by reading Dwight Edwards A Tale of Three Ships. If you’re looking to have a peaceful holiday, pick up Robert Flatt’s Healing Art. Through colorful and inspiring photos of animals and natural scenes, Flatt’s beautiful book teaches about healing and peace in times of adversity. If you’d like to spend your holiday putting energy into pleasing others, check out one of our cookbooks that are sure to make a hit at any party, like Hugo Ortega’s Street Food of Mexico or John DeMers Follow the Smoke.


 Genius begins great works.; Labor alone finishes them

Happy Labor Day from all of us, here at Bright Sky Press
