By the Book: Quill & Quire’s Dory Cerny’s reading highlights

Q&A conducted by Jennifer D. Foster

Dory CernyHave you ever wondered what fellow editors like to read? We have, too. In our new interview series, “By the Book,” we get the inside scoop on editors’ all-time favourite books, their top style guide, and what their alternate-universe career would be.

Tell us about your current job, Dory, plus a little-known quirky fact about you.

I’ve been the Books for Young People editor at Quill & Quire for three years, a job that entails assigning and editing reviews of Canadian children’s books (picture books, fiction, graphica, and non-fiction), writing about the publishing industry from a kidlit perspective, and hanging out with the wonderful people who create and publish kids’ books. I was a freelance reviewer for the Reviews (adult fiction and non-fiction) section for close to a decade before becoming a feature reviewer shortly before I joined the staff. Though I already have my dream job, I still harbour a secret desire to be “discovered” and offered a starring role on Broadway.

What is your all-time favourite book and why?
