Judith Curr (Atria)
Congratulations to everyone at Books & Books on 25 years. It is easy to see how you have achieved such a milestone and success with seeming ease. You bring genuine enthusiasm and excitement to everything that you do. Always supportive of new ventures and creating an inclusive community, never averse to risk taking. It is a pleasure to be associated with Books & Books, particularly because of the important role you have played in the lives of Atria authors. As a publisher, I’m well aware that the work we do here is only one part of what is necessary to make books flourish. Every day, you perform the magic of connecting individual readers with the books that fire their imaginations, open their minds to new ideas, and entertain them for hours. Atria Books has just celebrated its own 5th Anniversary, and in that time, I’ve come to see the marvelous team at Books & Books as our crucial partners in this business. I’m so grateful for all your support, bright ideas, and creativity. And above all, for the fun we’ve shared together!
