In 1990, Amy Gary discovered unpublished manuscripts and songs from Margaret Wise Brown tucked away in a trunk in the attic of Margaret’s sister’s barn. Since then, Gary has cataloged, edited, and researched all of Margaret’s writings. Amy’s work on Margaret has been covered in Vanity Fair, Entertainment Weekly, and on NPR. She was formerly the director of publishing at Lucasfilm and headed the publishing department at Pixar Animation studios. In addition to writing, she packages books for retailers and publishers. In that capacity, she has worked with Sam’s Wholesale, Books-a-Million, Sterling Publishers, and Charles Schultz Creative Associates. Her biography on Margaret, In the Great Green Room, will be published by Flatiron Books, a division of Macmillan, in January 2017.
