Penguin Random House Children’s has written in remembrance of “our beloved former Random House and Bantam Books colleague, Doris Bass” who died at age 86. “While there are only a few of us presently on staff who were professional contemporaries of hers, her contributions to our publishing efforts in the seventies, eighties, and early nineties, and the heart and wisdom she poured into them, have tremendous resonance for who we are as publishers today…. Doris was one of the true trailblazers of our profession, creating the template and framework for the trade publisher library-promotion playbook we still use today. She is singularly responsible for helping to instill a love of reading and a passion for books in several generations of young and old, as well as a permanent place for books in classrooms and school libraries across America.”
Ingram Publisher Services will handle sales and distribution in the US and Canada for Adaptive Studios, Edgy Reads, Elevate Publishing and Mango Media. They are also providing distribution for Cahiers d’Art.
