  1. Meet Our New Assistant Editor

    We are pleased to announce that Alef Davis is our new Assistant Editor at Behrman House and Apples & Honey Press.

    "Alef has great editorial instincts and an ear for language," says Dena Neusner, executive editor. "She brings enthusiasm to her work and we're looking forward to watching her grow even more."

    Her promotion to assistant editor recognizes the significant growth she's achieved across a range of responsbilities.
