Henry Holt Names New EIC; Marjorie Braman Comes from HarperCollins

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:

She is one of the leading editors in the industry and her excellent track record at Harper Collins is notable for her publishing of quality and commercial books at the same time that she has excelled as a partner for her authors and as a team player for her colleagues.

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.
