Nancy Paulsen to Helm Her Own Imprint at Penguin

p2323.jpgPenguin Young Readers Group has tapped Nancy Paulsen, the publisher at G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers, to head her own brand-new imprint–Nancy Paulsen Books.

Her first books will arrive in 2011, and the imprint will publish 12-15 picture books, middle grade and young adult novels every year. Putnam Books for Young Readers is searching for her replacement now, but she will serve until the change. Over the course of her career, she has edited authors like Jacqueline Woodson (“After Tupac and D Foster”), Adele Griffin (“Where I Want to Be”), and Joan Bauer (“Hope Was Here”).

Penguin Young Readers Group president Don Weisberg had this statement: “Paulsen has edited many of today’s most beloved authors and illustrators. Her keen eye for new talent and incomparable editorial vision have helped develop the careers of some of today’s rising stars. Nancy has spent her entire career at Penguin, and as I look over the Penguin Young Readers Group catalog, it could not be what it is today without her.”
