Welcome to our third week of our publisher spotlight event! This week we are very excited to be featuring Simon & Schuster.
A publisher that I’m sure all of you are familiar with and have put out some of our all time favorite books!
Simon & Schuster was founded in 1924 by Richard L. (Dick) Simon and M. Lincoln (Max) Schuster. Their initial project was a crossword puzzle book, the first ever produced, which was a runaway bestseller. From that, the company has grown to become a multifaceted publishing house that publishes approximately 2000 titles annually. Its publishing groups and divisions – the Simon & Schuster Publishing Group, The Scribner Publishing Group, the Atria Publishing Group, the Gallery Publishing Group, Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing, Simon & Schuster Audio, and Simon & Schuster Digital, and international companies in Australia, Canada, India and the United Kingdom — are home to some of the most distinguished imprints and recognizable authors in the world of publishing. Simon & Schuster and its imprints have won 55 Pulitzer Prizes, and been the recipient of numerous National Book Awards, National Book Critics Circle Awards, Grammy Awards, and Newbery and Caldecott Medals.
With their many imprints it’s no wonder we love so many books by them!
