Debra Dorfman has joined the publishing house as VP and publisher of paperbacks, Cartwheel and licensed publishing for the Scholastic Trade Publishing division.

The move brings Dorfman full circle back to her roots; she spent 12 years at Scholastic earlier in her career, leaving in 2001 to join Penguin Young Readers Group as president and publisher of its Grosset & Dunlap/Price Stern Sloan unit.

Her new position is a brand-new one that will see Dorfman oversee the editorial direction of all original paperback, novelty and licensed books publishing for the unit.
