Special Guest Linda Epstein is an agent at Emerald City Literary. She represents picture books, middle grade and young adult novels, and children’s non-fiction. She likes stories for children and young adults that deal with issues of identity, history, sexual politics, feminism, and culture. Some of her other interests also include art, food, and the environment. She sometimes likes monsters, too. Linda looks for the offbeat, quirky, and left of center, with bonus points given if you keep your sense of humor about it all. She is deeply committed to representing projects that give voice to work by and about all kinds of marginalized people.
