Careers at Lee & Low

About the company: Established in 1991, LEE & LOW BOOKS INC. is the largest children’s book publisher in the United States specializing in diversity and has been a leader in the movement for greater representation in children’s publishing for over 30 years. The family-run, independent, and certified 100% Minority Owned Business Enterprise (MBE) produces high-quality books for every age, that are truly “about everyone - for everyone.” Our books have won major awards including the Coretta Scott King Award, the Pura Belpré Award, and the NAACP Image Award.

Lee & Low Books is an equal opportunity employer. Our commitment to diversity for our publishing program is matched by a commitment to support a diverse and inclusive workforce behind the scenes. We encourage people of all backgrounds to apply, especially those from historically misrepresented communities. To quote our friends at We Need Diverse Books, “We recognize all diverse experiences, including (but not limited to) LGBTQIA, Native, people of color, gender diversity, people with disabilities, and ethnic, cultural, and religious minorities.”
