featuring...drum roll please...
agent extraordinaire Stephen Barbara of Foundry Literary + Media as well as author and client the lovely Leila Sales
Stephen Barbara represents everything from Young Adult fiction to picture books as well as adult fiction and nonfiction with a young, hip feel, and crossover potential. His clients include (Leila Sales, of course), Lynne Jonell, Lauren Oliver, Laura Amy Schlitz, Todd Strasser, and Tom Venuto. Before Foundry, Stephen worked previous stints at HarperCollins and the Donald Maass Agency.
Leila Sales' debut novel MOSTLY GOOD GIRLS released on October 5th. She grew up outside of Boston, Massachusetts, and graduated from the University of Chicago. Now she lives in Brooklyn, New York and spends her time thinking about sleeping, kittens, dance parties, and stories that she wants to write. She also works in publishing, so we've got a two-for deal on our hands.
The topic for discussion will be the Agent-Author relationship, so start brainstorming questions now! We'll see you on the 15th!
