sohop23.jpgSoho Press co-founder and EIC Laura Hruska passed away this weekend at 74-years-old.

Hruska helped found the press in 1986, and it has now grown into a publisher that releases between 60 and 80 titles every year. During her long career, she supported Edwidge Danticat, Susan Richards, Garth Stein, and Jacqueline Winspear.

Hruska also wrote three novels during her life: “A Change of Heart,” “Legal Relations,” and “Multiple Choice.” Publishers Weekly has more information about the editor’s memorial service. In December Soho Press named her daughter, Bronwen Hruska, publisher of Soho Press.
