Hallie Schaeffer,
assistant to Elisabeth Weed and Brettne Bloom

Hallie Schaeffer joined The Book Group after working at Princeton University Press on the Natural History and History of Science lists. She studied English literature and mathematics at Bowdoin College and attended the Columbia Publishing Course after graduating. Hallie reads omnivorously, but her favorite books tend to be speculative or high-concept science fiction with epic narratives and strong world-building. She also enjoys environmental narratives, mythical retellings, and books about the ocean.
