Meet our fall 2018 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 our editorial interns Jeannie and Rachel, both of whom are a huge help to us — especially last week as we prepared for the 2018 BGHB Awards ceremony!

Interested in a Horn Book internship? The deadline to apply for spring 2019 is November 1st; learn more here.
