Random House executive director of publicity Carol Schneider will retire next month after 32 years at the publisher.
Random House publisher Gina Centrello had this tribute: “In 32 years, from typewriters to tweets, Carol has been a publicity trailblazer for the Random House Group imprints … With sensitivity and wisdom, she has been a devoted friend and booster of the efforts of booksellers across the country, as well as countless print, broadcast, and online journalists, reviewers, and bloggers.”
Schneider began her career in the publicity department of David McKay Publishers. She joined Random House in 1979. She also wrote Fresh: A Greenmarket Cookbook and co-wrote Midnight Snacks: The Cookbook That Glows in the Dark.
