Standout Student Jessica Day ’17

English Major Reflects on Internship with Publishing Co.
with additional reporting by Ashley Mantrana ’20
Hachette Book Group is the publishing house of such well-known authors as James Patterson, Stephenie Meyer, Nicholas Sparks, David Baldacci, Michael Connelly, and Elin Hilderbrand. It is here that English major Jessica Day ’17 landed a competitive internship at Little, Brown Books for Young Readers – the company’s children’s and young adults division. She quickly caught the attention of upper management, including Andy Ball ’92, director, managing editorial (and fellow English major), who was impressed with her poise and how well-prepared she was for the opportunity.
News@Hofstra visited Jessica during the final week of her internship to get some insight and internship advice.
