Penguin Viking

Lindsey Schwoeri joined Viking Penguin in 2013 after six years at the Random House imprint. She acquires literary and upmarket commercial fiction, narrative nonfiction, and memoir.

She has edited multiple New York Times bestsellers, a Reese’s Book Club pick, and an Edgar Award winner, and her authors have been finalists for the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, the Booker Prize, and the Giller Prize. They include Flynn Berry, Bianca Bosker, Halle Butler, Susan Fowler, Blaine Harden, U.S. Senator Mazie K. Hirono, Rebecca Makkai, Sarah Thankam Mathews, Kate Reed Petty, Sunjeev Sahota, Melissa Segura, Vivek Shanbhag, and Alejandro Zambra.
