3. The Acquisition
See You in the Cosmos was jointly acquired by two editors—one on each side of the Atlantic. In this episode, we meet those two editors. Jess Garrison is Senior Editor at Dial Books for Young Readers, part of Penguin Young Readers in the US. Anthea Townsend is Editorial Director at Penguin Random House Children’s in the UK. We hear about how they came together over the manuscript, and what they look for in the books they publish.
