Hawk's Nest Publishing was founded in 2006-- honoring the memory of Francis "Hawk" Connery, a well known coach and advocate for youth sports from Springfield, Massachusetts.
The business was established in Mystic, Connecticut by Peg Connery-Boyd to manage the production and distribution of our first publication, the First Edition of the Boston Red Sox Coloring and Activity Book, a project co-authored by nephew Brendan Fitzgerald, of Springfield, Massachusetts. The creation of the Red Sox Coloring and Activity book was inspired by a family love of baseball shared by Peg's three sons, Kevin, Ian, and Colin Boyd, who initially admired a sketch of Manny Ramirez that she had drawn. With the support of husband, Jim Boyd, and countless friends and family members, our company was born.
Licensed by Major League Baseball Properties Inc. and the Major League Baseball Players Association in 2007, Hawk's Nest Publishing went on to release the Yankees and Mets Coloring and Activity Books. Updated editions of our MLB books will be released annually. Hawk's Nest Publishing is also working on exciting new coloring and activity book projects coming soon!
