Riverhead Books is thrilled to announce that Publicity Director Jynne Dilling Martin will join Kate Stark and Catherine Lynch in the additional role of Associate Publisher, Riverhead Books. Ms. Martin joined Riverhead in 2011. She quickly fulfilled – and surpassed – the reputation she had already established for her passion, smarts, and originality in creating innovative, electric, no-stone-unturned campaigns for many of Riverhead’s national bestsellers, including Khaled Hosseini’s And the Mountains Echoed, Junot Díaz’s This Is How You Lose Her, Meg Wolitzer’s The Interestings, Masha Gessen’s The Man Without a Face, Chang-rae Lee’s On Such a Full Sea, and Peter Matthiessen’s In Paradise. Her determination and personal zeal have helped to propel the careers of established writers to new heights, and elevated the profiles of a number of emerging writers, such as Helen Oyeyemi, Juan Gabriel Vasquez, Claire Vaye Watkins and Marlon James.
 This new title recognizes the role she has taken on beyond being an exemplary publicity director in all of these ways. Working closely with Kate Stark and Geoffrey Kloske, Ms. Martin has been equally tireless and resourceful in helping to discover emerging platforms, new media forms, and new partnerships —  and in the process, she has been instrumental in making Riverhead’s publicity and marketing apparatus the envy of the industry, and in highlighting Riverhead itself as a highly regarded and much-sought-after home for exceptional, important authors and books.
 Prior to Riverhead, Ms. Martin was the Associate Director of Publicity at the Random House Publishing Group, and has also worked at Simon & Schuster and St. Martin’s Press.

Hope to see all our book friends at the first ever fundraiser for VIDA on June 18 at the Brooklyn Brewery! Riverhead Books is proud to host this beer & dancing throwdown for a worthy cause.
booksmatter:

In college, one of my English professors threatened to institute a “sorry jar” policy for the females in his classes. Like the “swear jar,” the sorry jar would have required a monetary donation any time a female spoke in class and, at some point in her talking, apologized. Apparently his female students—strong, smart women in a top liberal arts college—often (unconsciously, accidentally) apologized, just for expressing their ideas.
In 2011, The Atlantic published 235 pieces men and 91 by women. Harper’s: 141 men, 42 women. The London Review of Books: 504 men, 117 women.
VIDA: Woman in Literary Arts compiles the above numbers every year, one of their many efforts to explore critical and cultural perceptions of writing by women. Their first annual fundraiser, hosted by Riverhead Books, will be June 18, 2012, in Brooklyn. I suggest you attend—not only to drink unlimited beer and to mingle with Emma Straub but to support this organization and the women writers out there who, every day, are fighting to be heard.
