Name: Eliza Haun
Company: Chelsea Green Publishing

Question #1: Where and when do you read?
I lived in London for about 10 years and always used my commute as a time to read, which resulted in lots of missed stops! Since moving back to Vermont a little over a year ago, and having to drive everywhere, now I mostly read in bed before I go to sleep, but my favorite place is in a hammock.

Question #2: Which book have you most given as a present?
I constantly loan and borrow books with friends and family, but I most often give books as gifts to kids—The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, Angelina Ballerina by Katherina Holabird, and Good Dog, Carl by Alexandra Day are favourites.

      

Question #3: What do you remember about your first book fair?
My first book fair was only last year (Frankfurt) so I remember it very well! I had 39 meetings over the 3 days which I’m sure seems like nothing to a lot of people but felt like to me like a crazy (but fun!) swirl of pitching our books and connecting names with faces.

Question #4: Tell us the resolutions you have made for this year.
Buying a house and then a dog! Maybe not in that order…

Question #5: Tell us about a bad habit, an obsession or a particular attitude you have picked up since starting to work at Chelsea Green
I don’t think it’s a bad habit, and it’s more like working at Chelsea Green has enabled and fostered my slightly obsessive enjoyment of making endless lists and spreadsheets—but in the rights business I like to think that those tendancies are really more like assets!
