Atria Picks Up Durand As Senior Editor

sarah-durand-headshot.jpgAfter a decade working her way up the editorial ladder at William Morrow, Sarah Durand is relocating to Simon & Schuster‘s Atria Books imprint after the Labor Day weekend, retaining her current title of senior editor.

Durand’s recent portfolio of acquisitions for the Morrow, Avon, and Harper imprints ranges a memoir from the wife of the lead singer for Stone Temple Pilots and an etiquette guide for Goths to a tour of the world’s Jewish communities (“from Rangoon to Havana and from Tehran to the hills of Uganda,” according to the deal announcement). Her track record is most clearly established, however, in the acquisition of mysteries and thrillers. Either way, she looks to be a good fit with Atria’s existing areas of focus.
