Media Source, based in Dublin, Ohio, is best known for its ownership of Junior Library Guild, a review and selection service for children’s and young adult books that has served the library market since 1929.
Horn Book will continue to run its editorial operations from its offices in Boston, Massachusetts, where it has been in operation since 1924. The Boston Globe–Horn Book Awards will remain in Boston as well.
According to Horn Book’s Editor-in-Chief Roger Sutton, “The expertise, enthusiasm, and resources that Media Source brings to the table will allow us to enlarge our audience while maintaining our independent viewpoint and high standards.” Regarding any changes to the magazine, Sutton says, “Our print and digital publications will be refreshed, redesigned, and rethought — but always in line with founder Bertha Mahony Miller’s directive to ‘blow the horn for fine books for boys and girls.’”
