My authors (scholars, policy analysts, and journalists) include Beinecke, Boren, Fulbright, Guggenheim, MacDowell Colony, and Mellon Fellows, Yaddo alumni, Chevaliers of the Ordre des Palmes Académiques, National Endowment for the Humanities grant recipients, winners of the Bolton-Johnson Prize, the Hans Gatzke Prize, the Harry Oppenheimer Award, the Prix Maurice Baumont, and the Prix Bristol des Lumières. Publishers Weekly and the ABA named me as one of the top professionals in publishing in 2016, while Publishers Marketplace currently ranks me #1 among editors of history, politics, and current affairs books. Wellesley’s alumnae magazine has profiled me.
My books have been well reviewed in Arts & Letters Daily, Dissent, the Economist, the Financial Times, the Guardian, Kirkus Reviews, the Literary Review, the Los Angeles Review of Books, the Nation, the New Yorker, the New York Review of Books, the New York Times, Publishers Weekly, and the Wall Street Journal, and have been serialized in the Atlantic, Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, the Guardian, Harper’s Magazine, the Washington Post, and Lapham’s Quarterly. They have won prizes from the Council on Foreign Relations and scholarly associations.
I have developed my knowledge of the industry by attending the Yale Publishing Course (for which I was a finalist for the Innovative Leader Scholarship) and the Göteborg Book Fair (on a fellowship from the Swedish Arts Council).
I have taught workshops for prospective publishing employees and for faculty preparing their books for submission to publishers at American University, the American University of Beirut, Georgetown University, the University of Southern California (as a faculty member at the inaugural publishing workshop there, organized by the LA Review of Books), and Yale.
I have contributed reviews and review essays to the LA Review of Books, National Public Radio's website, Ploughshares, the Times Literary Supplement, and other venues, too.
