About the Editor

Editor photo of Megan Hogan

Megan Hogan is looking for narrative and idea-driven nonfiction, especially overlooked and revisionist history, literary and investigative journalism, science and nature, (pop) culture, and a smattering of self-help. She’s especially drawn to books with real bearing on how we live our lives, as individuals and societies.

Many of her favorite projects are equal parts entertaining and enlightening. She also has a soft spot for braided narratives, quirky deep dives, graphic nonfiction, queer stories, and tales from the American West.  

Past publications include national bestseller Why Fish Don’t Exist by Radiolab co-host Lulu Miller; Eve Fairbanks’s The Inheritors, winner of the PEN/John Kenneth Galbraith Award for Nonfiction; Katie Booth’s The Invention of Miracles, a finalist for both the PEN/Jacqueline Bograd Weld Award for Biography and the Mark Lynton History Prize; New York Times bestseller The Fourth Turning is Here by Neil Howe; New York Times Notable Book The Chancellor by Kati Marton; and Indie Next pick The Stowaway by Laurie Gwen Shapiro. Her forthcoming projects include looks at predatory landlords, a nonbinary preacher during the American Revolution, and the shitty boyfriends of Western literature.

A graduate of Princeton University, Megan joined Simon & Schuster in 2014, after two years at a translation agency in Paris.
