From the Editor - October 2022

Now that the November/December issue of the Magazine is at the printer (it’s a good one!), I can look up from between deadlines and give a heartfelt thank-you to everyone who has reached out with kind words and congratulations about my being named editor in chief of The Horn Book, Inc. It’s a role I take very seriously, the silliness of these Five Questions answers notwithstanding, and especially as The Horn Book approaches our one-hundredth anniversary in 2024.

For now, we hope you’re enjoying our virtual Boston Globe–Horn Book Awards celebration; currently midway through Nonfiction week — last week was Fiction and Poetry, next week is Picture Book — and culminating with Boston Globe books contributing editor Kate Tuttle’s interview with the 2021–2022 BGHB judges on October 31. Costumes encouraged but not required.

From the October 2022 issue of Notes from the Horn Book.
