New Agent At Pippin Properties

Joan Slattery is joining Pippin as Literary Agent & Contracts Manager.

From 2000-2002, Joan was Publishing Director of Knopf and Crown, but she greatly missed her hands-on relationships with her authors, and decided to return to her editorial roots. She stayed with Random House, and eventually became a senior executive editor.  A graduate of Dartmouth, Joan also earned her M.S. in Library Science several years ago.  

Joan brings editorial vision and focused attention to detail to whatever she embarks on, and in her nearly twenty years at Random House, she has worked with authors such as Jerry Spinelli, Philip Pullman, Cynthia Voigt, Adele Griffin, and Jane Smiley.  In addition to her role as our Contracts Manager, she’ll be developing her own distinguished list of authors across all genres, but with a focus on fiction, from chapter books to middle-grade to YA.

Holly McGhee says, “It’s always been such a pleasure to work with Joan in her editorial capacity, and I’m so pleased she’s now joining us at Pippin!” Joan’s last day at Random House is September 21 and her first day at Pippin is November 1.  

Her new email address is  if you’d like to say hello. WELCOME, JOAN!

Talk tomorrow,
