Carolyn Kelly joined Avid Reader Press in January 2019 after interning for Writers House, the Frances Goldin Literary Agency, and W. W. Norton & Company. Her titles include 100,000 First Bosses: My Unlikely Path as a 22-Year-Old Lawmaker by Will Haskell and Pretty Baby by Chris Belcher. In her time at Avid, she has assisted on bestselling projects by Lisa Taddeo, Frank Bruni, Ezra Klein, and more. She is interested in editing literary and upmarket fiction with an emphasis on familial sagas, big-hearted storytelling at the intersection of grief and humor, and speculative stories, as well as memoir from original voices and perspectives. A native Chicagoan and lifelong Cubs fan, Carolyn moved to New York after graduating from Princeton University summa cum laude with a degree in English.
