Henry Holt and Company has a new editor-in-chief. According to Publishers Lunch, Marjorie Braman, formerly an executive editor at HarperCollins, will begin September 8th. Earlier this month, The Observer‘s Leon Neyfakh wondered “Who’s Editing Holt?” Soon enough, it will be Ms. Braman.
PL quotes Holt President Dan Farley as saying:
In 2005, The Observer‘s Sheelah Kolhatkar spoke to Ms. Braman about the then-popular trend of anthologized essay books.
Expect more on this from Media Mob and Pub Crawl as Ms. Braman begins her new role at Holt.
