SO SO SO SO SO SO EXCITED that the brilliant Jacqueline Woodson's book Brown Girl Dreaming is a New York Times bestseller.
It’s a fascinating and beautiful memoir-in-verse about the way that history shapes the lives of individuals, and how one girl grew up. Woodson is one of our best and smartest writers for children, but as an adult who has read this book twice in the last couple months, I can tell you that this book is truly for everyone.
YAY YAY YAY YAY.

Love Can Be Simple: What a group of teenagers taught me about writing a love story

Just a tremendous piece by the award-winner Nina LaCour, author of Hold Still, The Disenchantments, and, most recently, Everything Leads to You. So proud to be her editor.

What a spectacular way to head into Esther Day. Who knew Jeopardy had such impeccable timing.

Finally, once-in-a-decade proof that I am not crazy. Was starting to think I imagined the entire thing.  Glad I didn’t (though I wish I had a time machine).
