Condé Kid: Steve Florio’s Daughter Publishes a Book

(Via WWD)

Kelly Florio Kasouf, the daughter of Steve Florio, the deceased former CEO of Condé Nast, has written a book about growing up in the world of the publishing power house. The book isn’t what you think it is though. It’s not filled with gossip about rude publishers and moody editors — it’s a children’s book.

According to WWD, Florio Kasouf’s book, The Super Adventures of Sophie and the City: All in a Day’s Work, is a fictional account of a little girl who sneaks into her father’s publishing company and ends up in different world’s that carry a magazine theme. While that sounds like a cool idea, we loved Florio Kasouf’s tale of the first time she met Anna Wintour.

“She asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up,” explained Florio Kasouf. “I said, ‘I’m going to take your job.’ Apparently she had said the same thing early on in her life, so she thought it was cute.”

That’s the kind of thing only the daughter of a high-powered exec can get away with.
