CAA Hires Publishing Exec Kate Childs – Variety
Childs will work in collaboration with publishing houses to develop strategic programming in support of a book launch that expands upon a clientâ€™s existing fan base and amplifies their reach to readers across multiple channels.
Childs will be based in CAAâ€™s New York office and joins the agency from Random House, where she worked for the past eight years, most recently serving as director of special events and Event Partnerships. While at Random House, Childs was responsible for conceptualizing and executing one-of-a-kind experiences, from exclusive author luncheons to large-scale fan retreats.
CAAâ€™s new service offering was established on the heels of the departmentâ€™s most successful year to date, with client books on the New York Times Best Sellers list for a combined 60 weeks in the last year, including Elizabeth Vargasâ€™ â€œBetween Breaths,â€ Mark Mansonâ€™s â€œThe Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck,â€ Kate Hudsonâ€™s â€œPretty Happy,â€ Ainsley Earhardtâ€™s â€œTake My Heart, My Child.â€
CAA Book Publishing group deals include Reese Witherspoonâ€™s Southern lifestyle book, Caitlyn Jennerâ€™s upcoming memoir, and Helen Fieldingâ€™s â€œBridget Jonesâ€™s Baby.â€
