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 brand-new editorial interns Colleen and Flannery, both of whom will be a huge help to us this summer.

Interested in a Horn Book internship? The deadline to apply for fall 2018 is July 1st; learn more here.
