Before she began a career in book publishing, Alli Shapiro’s favorite job was working as a marketing intern — for a commune.
She no longer makes her own tofu, but hasn’t lost the drive to tell fresh stories from compelling perspectives. That goal guides her role as an associate publisher, where she helps authors from a diversity of viewpoints bring their ideas into the world.
Alli is a graduate of Northwestern University with a degree in journalism. Before joining Disruption Books, she was an online editor at a 100-year-old newspaper, where she led the transition of the family-owned property from print to digital.
A military brat, Alli now lives in Brooklyn. You’ll find her at the theater, in the yoga studio, or at home, trying unsuccessfully to cram all her books into a very small apartment.
