Random House Children’s Books has announced a new middle grade and YA imprint, Labyrinth Road, with a focus on contemporary fantasy and realistic literary novels. Liesa Abrams will serve as vice president and editor-in-chief of the imprint, effective November 9, 2020. Abrams was most recently vice-president, editor-at-large at Simon & Schuster. In a statement, she says,
Labyrinth Road is a home for books about epic journeys—both fantastical and emotional—that give readers a way to explore our world and imagined worlds. Labyrinths have twists and turns, but they don’t have dead ends. These will be books where readers can choose to get lost, and ultimately find themselves.
The imprint will launch its debut titles in 2022.
