About the Editor

Caitlyn Dlouhy likes to say she grew up in a willow tree, where she hauled books tip top high.  From that perch, she could see the whole world… through the lens of those books. This has always influenced her publishing choices; the power of voice — unusual and unexpected, marginalized or yet un-sung, voices that shimmer and hum, that press and push and experiment — is irresistible.  Her books have received  Newbery Medal/Honors,  National Book Award/Finalists, Printz honors, Coretta Scott King Awards, Walter, Pura Bel Pre, Edgar, and Kirkus Awards.   Many have been New York Times bestsellers and hit most banned books lists.

Just a few of the luminaries she publishes include Marjorie Agosin, Laurie Halse Anderson, Kathi Appelt, Ashley Bryan, Doreen Cronin,  Jennifer de Leon, Frances O’Roark Dowell, Sharon Draper, William Joyce, Cynthia Kadohata, Betsy Lewin, Alison McGhee, Matt Mendez, An Na, Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, James Ransome, Jason Reynolds, Eric Rohmann, Judith Viorst, and Alicia D. Williams.
