A century ago, Richard Simon and Max Schuster founded a small publishing company. Their first titles were crossword puzzle books, but they quickly moved to a broad range of popular titles, always dedicated to introducing their authors’ books to the most readers. 
Today, Simon & Schuster is the largest independent trade publisher of adult and children’s books, with a legacy of distinguished award winners, breakout bestsellers, and literary gems in every genre. 

As Simon & Schuster celebrates its 100th anniversary this year, employees discuss the company’s impact on the literary landscape.
