   Dial Books for Young Readers

Location:   United States
Description:  Dial Books for Young Readers is a hardcover division publishing approximately fifty titles a year for children of all ages, from preschool through young adult. Dial traces its roots to 1880 and the founding of The Dial, a monthly literary magazine that was edited over the years by Conrad Aiken, Van Wyck Brooks, and Marianne Moore, and published such literary giants as e.e. cummings, T.S. Eliot, D.H. Lawrence, and Gertrude Stein. The magazine founded a book publisher, The Dial Press, in 1924. The publishing house survived, although the magazine was long gone by 1961 when the children's book division was established. By the 1960's, Dial was jointly owned by Richard Baron and Dell Publishing Company; E. L. Doctorow was editor-in-chief. When Dell was acquired by Doubleday in the late '60s, that company sold the children's division of Dial to E. P. Dutton, and after another few changes in corporate ownership, Dial Books for Young Readers found its current home as a division of the Penguin Young Readers Group
