Egmont USA acquired by Lerner Publishing Group


Lerner Publishing Group acquired Egmont USA and its near-100 books. The titles will be folded into existing Lerner Publishing imprints over the upcoming months.

The last books published by Egmont USA will be published by Egmont USA and be distributed by Random House until April 30th before integrating with Lerner.

“I am delighted to be able to confirm that we have found a home for our authors with one of the US’s largest independently owned children’s publishers,” said Rob McMenemy, CEO of Egmont Publishing International.

The last list Egmont USA titles, including Ilsa J. Bick’s White Space and Sarah Cross’ Tear You Apart, continue to campaign for attention using the hashtag #LastListEgmont, as the future of the series and books are still in question.

“Every preorder, every post of support, and every time you mention one of my books to a friend, that reality [of my Into the Dark series continuing]comes a little closer. Thank you so much to everyone who has shown their support through this rough month,” wrote Despain on her Tumblr.
