Goodbye, Hilary!

Goodbye, Hilary!

Our New England sales rep, Dani McGrath, poses with Hilary Emerson Lay (Manager/Bibliophile/Fearless Seller of Literature/Enthusiastic Changer of Hair Color) at The Spirit of 76 Bookstore on Feb 9th.

Soon we’ll bid a fond farewell to one of our favorite booksellers: Hilary Emerson Lay. Hilary is leaving the Spirit of ’76 Bookstore in Marblehead, Massachusetts on February 29. We’ve been fortunate enough to work with Hilary for several years, and we’ve found her to be a tireless proponent of good books and a “Fearless Seller of Literature” at every turn. She also understands and supports local-interest books as well as anyone in the business, and as a result she’s been an invaluable resource for our sales reps, publicists and acquisitions editors. And while we’re at it, she happens to be funny, fiercely intelligent, and kind to animals. (If you don’t believe it, ask a hedgehog.)

For Hilary—always an Enthusiastic Changer of Hair Color—we’re proud to offer this photo salute.

Many thanks, Hilary! -The History Press

    Drat! I thought you were referring to Hilary Clinton. I can dream and hope that will happen in November 2012.
