1. I am moving to Boston for the summer to be the Children’s Editorial Intern for Houghton Mifflin’s children’s imprint, working with Margaret Raymo, the Editorial Director. This is such an exciting opportunity, and everyone has great things to say about living in Boston, especially in the summer. As this is an internship, I’m still looking for a more permanent job in children’s publishing for the future.
2. Moving to Boston means Monday is my last day as the Odyssey Bookshop’s Children’s Department Manager. Marika McCoola will be replacing me there. Marika is a great artist, knows loads about children’s books, and is going to be a great addition to the Odyssey staff. Check out her book reviews and artwork on her website, her review blog, and her exhibition blog.
For those wondering, yes, I will still be reviewing books and children’s lit-related topics on this blog. Don’t forget to check out my adult book reviews on my newest blog Afterthoughts for Adults.
