Julianna Haubner, Editor

Julianna spent four years at the Simon & Schuster imprint before joining Avid Reader Press in 2018. She enjoys a wide range of books, but seeks to acquire works of journalism, biography, women’s history, and upmarket and literary fiction that investigate dynamics between people, places, and cultural/political moments. In recent years she has edited the New York Times bestsellers Watergate: A New History and The Only Plane in the Sky: An Oral History of 9/11 by Garrett M. Graff, Speak by Tunde Oyeneyin, and Big Friendship by Ann Friedman and Aminatou Sow, as well as When Women Lead by CNBC anchor Julia Boorstin, Butts: A Backstory by writer and Radiolab contributor Heather Radke, and Leonora in the Morning Light by Pushcart Prize nominee Michaela Carter. Her forthcoming narrative nonfiction projects include explorations of the 1968 Miss America protests, the experience of pregnancy and childbirth in America, the debate surrounding the closing of Rikers Island, and the decades-long fight to reunite families in the wake of the Argentinian Dirty War. A native New Yorker and part-time Vermonter, she graduated with honors from Colby College, where she studied English and history.
