Lovely, smart, courageous, and funny, Florenz Eisman was CavanKerry’s first managing editor. Founding the press with Joan Cusack Handler in 1999, from 2000-2013 she managed every book that was published leaving a legacy of 70 new titles.
As a New Jersey based press, we have a commitment to publish one book by a New Jersey writer every 12-18 months. Selected from our open submissions, starting in fall 2016 this book will be named in honor of Florenz and each following publication will be inducted into the Florenz Eisman Memorial NJ Collection.
An avid reader of all literature and a gifted writer herself, Florenz’ imprint will last as long as CavanKerry does.
