Celebrating the Mother Ship

Lerner Publishing Group turns 50 this year, and it's an understatement to say this is very exciting for everyone involved. Booklist has a good article about Adam Lerner, son of the founder and our present CEO and publisher. (Among other things, you get learn that Lerner was "originally founded as Medical Books for Children, which had the express purpose of publishing books for children to page through in the waiting rooms of doctors’ offices.")

One thing the article doesn't get into is the origin of Carolrhoda. But I'm working on a post about that. Stay tuned.
