New Orleans Times-Picayune Book Pages Update

by admin | Jan-10-2008

New Orleans Times Picayune book editor and NBCC member Susan Larson sends this update on the changes in her newspaper’s book pages as reported in our December 30 post:

There’s been a minor glitch in the debut of “The Reading Life,” which will now make its debut next Wednesday, which will in future be its regular day. Wednesday was regarded internally as a better day for the section for strategic reasons. We’ll have announcements on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and on Wednesday, watch for our first section—which will include a large package about New Orleans reading groups, the introduction of our movers and shakers column, as well a weekly books-in-store feature, and the return of the New York Times bestseller list, which will be the first in a rotating series of lists in the future. In addition, readers will be seeing a larger presence for books on our Web site, The Times-Picayune stands by its commitment to book coverage—with our long history of fine writing, our lively literary culture, and the continued post-Katrina focus on our area, we have even more to write about!
