Arthur A. Levine founded Levine Querido in April 2019, after a 23-year tenure as the President and Publisher of Arthur A. Levine Books, an imprint of Scholastic. His determination to bring a diverse selection of “The Best of the World's Literature for Young People” to American readers was the guiding principle in all of Arthur’s publishing since its beginnings. Levine Querido publishes two lists: The Arthur A. Levine list, seeking out the writing and artwork of exceptionally talented creators and underrepresented voices; and the Em Querido list, a partnership with the renowned Dutch publisher to find the most outstanding authors and artists from around the world.
Arthur will be joined by several authors and editors: Kristen Mai Giang, author of Ginger and Chrysanthemum, Donna Barba Higuera, author of Lupe Wong Won’t Dance, Martha Brockebrough, author of This Old Dog, and Nick Thomas, Senior Editor at Levine Querido.
Friends, publishing colleagues, and children’s book enthusiasts are all welcome to join us in celebrating this wonderful new publishing venture!
