Grosvenor Literary Agency Folds Into Kneerim & Williams

Thanks to a tip from blogger Kristen Howe, I saw that Deborah Clarke Grosvenor, the DC-based literary agent who had her own literary agency called The Grosvenor Literary Agency, has recently joined Kneerim & Williams. She is now one of seven agents at K&W. Take note, if you're sending out queries. While other Kneerim & Williams agents seem to be based in Boston, Grosvenor is based in DC. Her address is 1425 K St. NW, Suite 1100, Washington, DC 20005; phone (202)626-6401.

This paragraph on her K&W page will help you figure out what she's looking for:

"During her publishing career, she has edited
or represented hundreds of nonfiction books
in the areas of narrative nonfiction, history,
biography, politics, current affairs, memoir,
the environment, the Middle East, the military,
science, and the American South, all areas in
which she maintains a strong interest. For
fiction, she is particularly interested in works
with historical or American South themes
and settings."
