    Egmont Publishing Int'l / Egmont USA

    Twitter feed was suddenly overflowing with news of Egmont USA announcing that they're closing at the end of January:
    http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/b...erializes.html

    They have some good YA titles I've read.

    So so sad for the authors.

    This is sad. It's also another publisher that publishes YA to close. Strange Chemistry was another one that happened about six months? ago. It's scary to see.

    Adding link to Egmont corporate: http://www.egmont.com/int/

    ETA: To clarify, "Egmont USA" is being absorbed into Lerner. We'll maintain this thread for Egmont, which has a zillion other divisions (e.g. Egmont UK: http://www.egmont.co.uk/).
