Simon & Shuster has been in business more than 90 years. The publishing company was founded by Richard L. Simon and M. Lincoln Schuster in 1924, according to Simonandschuster.biz.
Simon & Schuster publishes about 2,000 books every year through various trade names, known in the publishing industry as "imprints," for both adults and children. Well-known adult imprints include Pocket Books and Scribner, while imprints for children's books include Atheneum Books for Young Readers and Little Simon. The publishing company has been responsible for publishing dozens of award-winning books, including more than 50 Pulitzer Prizes for books published for adults and more than a dozen Caldecott and Newbery Medals for its children's books, says Simonandschuster.biz.
