New Literary Editor for The Nation

PW Daily’s Rachel Deahl reports that The Nation‘s current books editor Adam Shatz is making way for John Palatella, who arrives by way of the Columbia Journalism Review. Shatz is moving on to the London Review of Books. According to Nation editor-in-chief Katrina vanden Heuvel, Palatella will uphold the magazine’s commitment to serious book coverage. Speaking to the fact that most publications are cutting back on the pages they devote to books, vanden Heuvel said The Nation “believes in [books coverage] more than ever.” There will, however be some changes: Palatella plans look to bring more essays about literature and pop culture into the section and also beef up online coverage of books and the arts.
