Lerner Sponsors University Publishing Media Lab

The Lerner Publishing Media Lab on the Twin Cities campus of the University of Minnesota officially launched on September 17 with an open house celebration for students, faculty, staff, and the public. The media lab was established through a gift made by the Lerner Foundation in honor of Harry Lerner, who founded Lerner Publishing Group in Minneapolis in 1959. The media lab is located in the newly renovated Pillsbury Hall, the same building housing the English department, the creative writing program, and the University of Minnesota’s Liberal Arts Engagement Hub.

Harry graduated from the University of Minnesota’s College of Liberal Arts along with many other members of the Lerner family, including Sharon Lerner, Harry’s late wife and the founder of Carolrhoda Books (one of LPG’s trade imprints), and Adam Lerner, currently LPG publisher and CEO. Adam played a key role in the university’s launch, in 2018, of an editing and publishing program within the College of Liberal Arts, and serves as chair of the English department’s advisory board.
