The Redd Center also published a monograph series for approximately twenty years. These monographs provided an outlet for publications that were longer than an article but shorter than a book. They also included publication of the Redd Center's monthly lecture series. Around 2000 the Center decided to offer a subvention to presses to help reduce the per unit costs of books or to provide special features such as color prints. The Redd Center has also published books by Jessie L. Embry, Associate Director, based upon the Redd Center's Oral History projects. These include books on LDS Hispanic Americans and Asian Americans. Embry's book,
