Congratualtions are due again to Maureen Johnson, whose novel THE VANISHING STAIR made the Chicago Public Library’s list of Best Teen Fiction of 2019. Congrats also to new client Jen Petro-Roy, whose novel GOOD ENOUGH was named to the CPL’s list of the best fiction books published in 2019 for kids in 4th through 8th grades.
Wow — what a crazy day in publishing. Others have already summed up better than I, but in brief, the day after Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s publisher abruptly quit (and the week after their strange announcement of an acquisitions freeze), GalleyCat reports “a lot” of other firings in house. But that’s not all.
