As of the beginning of April, the editorial office of the Horn Book and all its resident oompa-loompas will be moving to 300 The Fenway, Boston MA, 02115. Sharp-eyed readers will recognize the address as also being that of Simmons College, and we are delighted to be renting an office suite just down the hall from Cathie Mercier and our other pals at the Center for the Study of Children’s Literature. More details to follow, but can I say how happy I am to be afforded lunch options beyond a (not-bad) Irish bar and a Dunkin’ Donuts? Trust me to focus on the things that really matter.
