Mabel Hsu, a children’s book editor at Katherine Tegen Books, which is an imprint of HarperCollins, works on everything from picture books to middle grade graphic novels to YA. In the video, Mabel discusses what a typical day for a children’s book editor looks like (no, she doesn’t just read kid’s books all day), common misconceptions about YA and children’s literature, how she and her mom bonded over children’s books, and why as a woman of color, she sometimes feels uncomfortable – even in the job she loves.
