Tonight, I finished reading the letters of legendary editor Ursula Nordstrom. Probably, I’m the last to read this book, because I’ve heard how amazing it is for years. It amazed me anyway. As a reader, as a scholar, as a reviewer, and as a writer, I learned so much about the evolution of children’s publishing in the US and the way that an editor can shape the vision of a book, an author, her publishing house, or an entire industry.
If you haven’t red this book, you have homework.
Go. Read. Be amazed.
