Lee and Low: Publisher Continues to Grow

Lee and Low is one of those publishers that I tend to keep an eye on not because my work is a great match for them but because they published my friend Lynn Rubright’s book, Mama’s Window.  

Just a few weeks ago, they acquired another publisher, Shen’s Books.  Shen’s Books was founded as a retailer in 1985.  They began publishing books in 1997 with an emphasis on cultural diversity and tolerance.  Their also focus on introducing children to Asian cultures.

Shen’s Books will be an imprint of Lee and Low, which will publish backlist titles as well as new titles.  The Shen’s Books imprint will release seven reprints in early 2014, as well as one new title in the spring.

Lee & Low is the largest U.S. children’s book publisher that specializes in diversity. It will be interesting to see where this new acquisition takes the company as a whole.
