Shelley Sperry

Shelley Sperry is an editor, writer, and researcher based in Alexandria, Virginia. She used to work at National Geographic, so she thinks every book is better if it has a cool map, a compelling landscape, or a lot of penguins. As an editor, Shelley specializes in editing nonfiction. She’s currently writing a Story Grid guide to James Baldwin’s classic big idea book, The Fire Next Time, and co-writing a book about alternative education with her sister. You can find her online at Sperry Editorial.
