Liz Hohenadel, senior publicity manager at Riverhead, died September 24. She passed away from a medical condition that arose suddenly, a few months ago. She was 34.
Hohenadel joined Riverhead in 2007 as a publicity assistant and, according to a spokesperson at the Penguin Random House imprint, “was beloved for her gregarious enthusiasm, her keen but kind sense of humor, and a commitment to her authors that did not diminish after publication.”
Among the dozens of authors she worked with were Brit Bennett, Anton DiSclafani, Nick Hornby, Jon Ronson, Etgar Keret, and Sarah Waters. She was also a major force behind prominent campaigns like the Paula Hawkins campaign for The Girl on the Train and the publicity extravaganza of Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic.
Hohenadel is survived by her husband Brian and her son Owen. Details about a service, or other tributes, are still being worked out.
