Namrata Tripathi Moving to Atheneum...
Just read this on Anastasia Suen's Children's Book Biz News blog (which you all should bookmark):
Namrata Tripathi, currently Senior Editor at Disney/Hyperion, will move to Atheneum as Executive Editor in December.Here's a little on Namrata from my August SCBWI conference post about a panel she participated in with other emerging editorial voices:
Namrata Tripathi describes herself as part analytical and part nurturing. She works on picture books through YA fiction and describes her style as eclectic/literary. She learned from Brenda Bowen that “interesting people make interesting editors.” Her interests are varied, including picture books, nonfiction, fiction, and funny, quirky, truthful, and heartbreaking all appeal to her.
