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 explore dynamics between people, places, and cultural/political moments in order to answer life’s big questions. She has edited bestselling books including Speak by Tunde Oyeneyin, Big Friendship by Ann Friedman and Aminatou Sow, and Garrett M. Graff’s The Only Plane in the Sky and Watergate (a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in history), as well as When Women Lead by CNBC anchor Julia Boorstin and Butts: A Backstory by writer and Radiolab contributor Heather Radke. Her forthcoming narrative nonfiction projects include explorations of the 1968 Miss America protests, 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
