Sadie Stein Named Editor of Paris Review Daily

Sadie Stein has been named the new editor of Paris Review Daily, the online counterpart to the prestigious literary journal. She starts on April 1st.

The current blog editor Deirdre Foley-Mendelssohn will lead the books section at Harper’s magazine.

Here’s more from the post: “During Deirdre’s tenure as editor of the Daily, our readership has doubled, and so has the amount we publish. Truly we have grown by leaps and bounds … You already know Sadie from her groundbreaking reports on wine cake and exotic meats and “the old ‘do I give my crush a sexually explicit book’ conundrum,” not to mention her weekly roundup, On the Shelf.” (Via Maud Newton)
