Penguin editors and publishers were clear standouts at the three 2015 BEA Editors Buzz panels.
At the Adult Editors Buzz, Penguin Press Publisher Scott Moyers described how he virtually “stalked” the agent of author Ottessa Moshfegh in his efforts to acquire her novel, Eileen
, featuring “a narrator who is unreliable in every respect,” with a plot that keeps readers guessing until “a strange, pretty wonderful twist at the end.” At the Young Adult Editors Buzz, Arianne Lewin, Executive Editor for Putnam Books for Young Readers, described her visceral reaction to the “moody and scary” Nightfall
by Jake Halpern and Peter Kujawinski, “best read with the lights on.” And at the BEA Middle Grade Editors’ Buzz, Nancy Paulsen, President and Publisher of Nancy Paulsen Books, raved about Last In A Long Line Of Rebels
by Lisa Lewis Tyre, in whose hands “history comes alive and is relevant.”
