Edward Necarsulmer of McIntosh & Otis, Inc. #scbwiwwa

Interesting: McIntosh & Otis is the third-oldest literary agency in the world (and the second-oldest in the states).

He represents everything from board books and picture books to YA. Stay tuned for a Jimi Hendrix picture book. He's looking for a Grateful Dead book, too ("perhaps for older readers").

He met his client Holly Cupala at an SCBWI first pages conference. Her novel comes out this summer.

He views books as an enormous service to kids, who face many challenges (no money, no freedom, no privacy) and have had their lives changed and saved by good books.
