Publishers Weekly just announced a new imprint for the venerable publishing house of Farrar, Straus, and Giroux. After serving extremely capably at FSG for the past three decades, most recently as the publisher and editorial director at FSG Books for Young Readers, Margaret Ferguson will be heading the new line.
Ferguson's imprint will "publish approximately 15 titles per year, across all age ranges and formats." Great news for an industry under seige and in need of a boost.
During her time at FSG, Ferguson has worked with such authors as Brock Cole, Alexandra Day, Uri Shulevitz, David Small, Sarah Stewart, and Judith Viorst. The division has won the Newbery Medal and two National Book Awards under her direction, in addition to numerous other awards and honors.
