Editor Sarah Jubar recognized as a rising star in publishing
Congratulations to acquiring editor Sarah Jubar on her recognition by Publishers Weekly as a PW Star Watch 2015 Honoree. In an interview for the PW article about the award, author Erik Shonstrom said: “Arthur Conan Doyle once wrote, ‘Writing should first be intelligible, then interesting, and if possible clever.’ Sarah Jubar seems to adhere to this advice as an editor. I am so grateful to have worked with someone who made the world of books, editing, and publishing feel like such a vital, generous place.” We're proud to have her on the team!
