Publisher’s Weekly To Add Canadian Book Reviews

Publishers Weekly will begin publishing reviews of Canadian books as part of its book reviews content beginning this fall.

The magazine explained in a press release that it “expects to publish approximately 20 reviews a month of titles that originate with publishing houses in Canada, increasing the review coverage of all books to more than 8,000 per year.” Rather than separating these reviews into a Canadian section, these reviews will be integrated with PW’s regular review categories and instead will be categorized as fiction and nonfiction, for example.

Leigh Anne Williams, PW‘s Canadian correspondent will serve as the Canadian Adult Reviews Editor, where she will review general fiction and nonfiction. “I’ve enjoyed reporting on the Canadian book scene, and I look forward to being more closely connected with the new Canadian literature forthcoming,” explained Williams in a press release statement.
