Merz, Kathleen

Kathleen Merz is the Editorial Director for Eerdmans Books for Young Readers. She joined Eerdmans in 2009, and since then has had the chance to work on a number of award-winning titles, including books that have won the Caldecott Honor, the Batchelder Award for translation, and the Sibert Medal. Kathleen studied English and linguistics, and especially enjoys working on translated books and nonfiction picture books. She’s particularly fond of stories that celebrate diversity and tackle contemporary social issues in ways that are organic, compelling, and honest. Kathleen lives in Michigan, and when she’s not at work editing, she can usually be found outside somewhere biking, kayaking, or just tucked in a hammock reading.
