Emily Witt Leaves The New York Observer to Write Book

Emily Witt, who primarily reported on book publishing for The New York Observer is leaving the paper to do what most journalists want to do, write a book.

She confirmed with Capital New York that the book, acquired by Faber & Faber will be a “thoroughly reported cultural history of female sexuality in America.”

Very different from writing about Barnes & Noble, celebrity publishing deals, and classic lit, but interesting all the same.
