Last week, Hudson Street EIC Caroline Sutton bought four non-fiction titles: “Achieve,” a book about reaching goals by Heidi Grant Halvorson, Ph.D; “Living Well Through Hard Times,” a book about “how to live the best possible life” by Karl Pillemer, Ph.D., Professor of Human Development and Geriatrics at Cornell University; “Rush,” a book about finding happiness in challenging situations, by former White House Director of Economic Policy, Todd Buchholz; and finally, “How to Raise Your Adult Child,” a book about “big problems of their big children” by Susan Feinberg Ph.D. and Gail Parent.

In an email interview with GalleyCat, Sutton praised her rapidly-growing catalog: “I’m very happy with the way the list is shaping up. I’d like to see Hudson Street Press become a name everyone immediately associates with nonfiction that has a really strong takeaway, whether the approach is prescriptive, descriptive, or more narrative.”
