A New Tune at One World

Guy the New Person at One World

Melody Guy, who directs Villard's Strivers Row imprint, has been named a senior editor at Ballantine Books and will take over the direction of One World, an imprint specializing in multicultural titles. One World has been without editorial leadership since Anita Diggs, its former director, left Ballantine in April 2002. Guy will continue to direct Strivers Row.

Guy, who worked at S&S before joining Villard in 1997, was the first editor of Striver?s Row, an imprint specializing in African American titles that was launched in 2000. One World was founded in the early 1990s and was one of the first imprints to focus on a multicultural market, specializing in titles for African American, Asian, Latin and other minority readers. -- Calvin Reid, PW Newsline
