Meet our summer 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 Emily and Katie and design intern Julia, all of whom are a huge help to us this summer.

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