Thirty-five years! That is a long time. That is a lot of books. And a lot of catalog copy. And a big reason to kick up our heels. Welcome to the Greenwillow Books thirty-fifth anniversary blog, where all year long we’ll be celebrating the past, present, and future of Greenwillow.
Greenwillow Books was founded on December 16, 1974, by Susan C. Hirschman. She was soon joined by art director Ava Weiss, managing editor Ada Shearon, and senior editor Libby Shub. They published the first list in the fall of 1975.
In late December 2009 we were invited to fill the cases in the lobby of our new offices here at 10 East 53rd Street with a Greenwillow anniversary display—here’s a video tour. If you don’t see your favorite book, don’t worry. Its time will come!
