About Bow Publications

Bonnie Szumski, Publisher
Until 2006, Bonnie was the publisher of Greenhaven Press, Lucent Books, and Kidhaven Press. During her tenure at Greenhaven, she served on the original team that developed the foundational Opposing Viewpoints series, and was instrumental in the creation of the Lucent and Kidhaven imprints. These opportunities provided her with experience in developing nonfiction content across the K-12 market. Under her direction, the company grew from a 2-person editorial staff with a list of 10 books to a 50-person editorial, design, and production staff with a list of over 300 titles a year. Maintaining a strict budget and publication schedule was a key part of her job.

Nancy Stetzinger, Vice President of Sales and Marketing
Nancy worked as the senior acquisitions manager at Follett Library Resources for 13 years. In this position, she became familiar with the competitive landscape of nonfiction publishing, as well as gaining a thorough understanding of what the end user and librarian need in nonfiction titles. Nancy has also spent the last 3 years as national sales manager for Millbook Press and Thomson Gale. Nancy also served on the board of the American Wholesale Book Association.
