New Editor Alert! Jeanne Elders DeWaard, Eerdmans

Barbara Krasner recently interviewed Jeanne Elders DeWaard, a new editor at Eerdman’s, on her blog

I know Barbara from NJ SCBWI. She did a great interview with Carolyn Yoder, Calkins Creek Press editor, for the issue of Sprouts that will be out any day.

Here’s information on Jeanne from Barbara’s interview:

Jeanne Elders DeWaard began her career in the adult division at Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. in the early 1990s, then left to complete a Ph.D. in American literature. She taught college literature for a number of years and pursued research interests in 19th-century domestic novels and theories of race, gender, and national identity. She joined Eerdmans Books for Young Readers as managing editor in 2010.  She lives in Grand Rapids with her husband and three children and enjoys running, bicycling, and of course, reading.

Thanks for the information, Barbara!  I wasn’t aware of Jeanne.
