Today, we’re excited to announce that original Bookish blogger and superstar reporter, Leon Neyfakh, has accepted an offer to become the Boston Globe’s new Ideas reporter. We hate to see Leon go, but our loss (and The Observer’s for that matter) is the Globe’s big gain. It’s the perfect gig for a genuinely great reporter. Congrats, Leon!
We’re also equally excited to announce that the amazing Gillian Reagan will be taking over the Bookish column from Leon starting next week. Gillian is an editor at Capital New York. She was previously a reporter for The New York Observer and an editor at the Business Insider. Her writing has appeared in The New York Times, among other publications. We’re lucky to have her.
Gillian will offer original reporting and insights on all things books — from author interviews to publishing news — every Tuesday. Look for her first post next week!
