Lauren Bajek

Lauren Bajek joined Liza Dawson Associates as an assistant in 2021.

Previously, she was a bookseller and the science fiction and fantasy buyer for the Elliott Bay Book Company, where she championed books in translation and books by women, queer people, and people of color.

After a year supporting Hannah Bowman’s list of revolutionary science fiction and fantasy, she is beginning to build her own list. She is reaching out to select authors of science fiction and fantasy, as well as nonfiction authors in the life sciences and social sciences. Across the board, she is drawn to literary prose, rich political and historical context, and an ambitious sense of imagination. She is always interested in animal cognition, translation, and sentient houses.

Lauren is not open to queries.
