Please send your addresses.

WHAT THE NIGHT SINGS is a fully illustrated young adult novel that delves into the seldom told story of life after the concentration camps. Follow one teen’s journey to rebuild her life after being stripped of everything—her parents, her music, her identity.

Vesper Stamper’s What the Night Sings has been longlisted for The National Book Award in the Young People’s Literature category!

Agent Anna Olswanger

Aspiring authors and author-illustrators can win the opportunity to consult with literary agent Anna Olswanger. Anna has been an agent since 2005. She started her career at Liza Dawson Associates in Manhattan, and in 2014 launched her own literary agency, Olswanger Literary LLC, where she represents a range of genres. Her client list includes both estates (Eleanor Roosevelt and Marvin Hamlisch) and first-time authors. Her clients’ books have won the Newbery Honor and have been on the The New York Times Bestseller list among many other distinctive honors. Anna enjoys discovering new authors and illustrators, and is looking for “voice,” the unique sound and rhythm of an author. She has sold books to major publishers, including Bloomsbury, Chronicle, HarperCollins, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Macmillan, Penguin Random House, Scholastic, and Simon & Schuster.

The winner may submit up to 10 double-spaced pages of a manuscript, which Anna will review and discuss in a half-hour phone consultation. Here is the link: https://cbo.io/bidapp/index.php?slug=bfusa Scroll down to the entry “123 – Literary Consult by Anna Olswanger.”
