About the Speaker

MARY FLOWER

Mary Flower is a lawyer who has worked in the publishing industry in various capacities for more than thirty years, the last twenty of which have been spent working with children’s book writers and illustrators helping them negotiate and understand their publishing agreements.

On the publisher’s side she has served as the contracts director at Scholastic and is currently the contracts manager for Grove/Atlantic. She says that one advantage of having worked for small publishers is that she has been able to get a good overview of how the publishing industry works.

Mary has been active in the SCBWI for many years as a speaker and legal adviser, and is the co-author of the SCBWI Sample Children’s Book Contract.

She lives in the Mid-Hudson Valley but as a devoted fan, during opera season Mary divides her time between her home in Tivoli, where her daughter and two granddaughters live, and New York City.
