About the Editor

Justin Chanda has been the publisher of the children’s trade imprints at S&S for fourteen years and counting. He oversees the publication of nearly three hundred and fifty titles per year ranging from the picture book to YA, while also maintaining an award winning and best-selling editorial list of his own. He is keenly interested in books that are equal parts commercial and literary, books that make a contribution to the tradition, while still truly entertaining kids. His first love is picture books – quirky, unique voices, funny with a twist.  But he is always on the lookout for a middle grade or YA that will surprise and transport – through voice, subject matter, or just plain pulling at the heartstrings.  Justin is also an adjunct instructor of Children’s Publishing at the NYU Graduate program.
