Meet our spring interns!

Every semester, we ask our interns to tell us a little about themselves. (Our ulterior motive: we want to chat with them about their favorite books!) Meet editorial interns Liz and Kayla and design intern Brett, all of whom are a huge help to us this spring.

Interested in a Horn Book internship? The application deadline for the summer 2017 semester is April 1 — and it’s coming up quickly!
